Randy Wells Does Not Like The Minor Leagues

Erstwhile Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Randy Wells is understandably unhappy about being in Triple-A. Wells, who was once a fixture of Chicago's rotation, did not make the major league team out of Spring Training, and has only been up for two starts this year, in which he posted an ERA over six. Wells knows that the only way he can make it out of the minors again is to pitch well while there, but according to the Chicago Sun-Times' Chris De Luca, his disdain is still palpable.

‘‘It sucks, but it’s part of the game,’’ Wells said. ‘‘Hanging your head and ­being ­upset with it isn’t ­going to do you any good. If you come down here and don’t pitch well, you’re ­pretty much burying yourself.’’

Making things worse for Wells is that he hasn't been any good in Triple-A this year, posting a 2-2 record and an ERA of 7.71. With Chris Volstad continuing to struggle, the door is certainly open for Chicago's minor league starters, but if a change is made anytime soon, it seems unlikely that Wells will get the call.
