Boomer And Us..A Love Ditty With No Chance Of Trading Mikey Lowell As The Result.

This from the Herald, and then a comment from me. You know I have to comment! So much to say.......

SEATTLE - "The Red Sox’ urgency to add another starting pitcher before the non-waivers trading deadline on July 31 may be easing up due to the recent progress of David Wells’ return from knee problems.
The 43-year-old left-hander threw 50 strong pitches in the bullpen prior to last night’s series opener vs. the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field and was immediately scheduled to throw five simulated innings Monday afternoon in Oakland. It’s possible that he could be dispatched on a brief, minor league rehabilitation assignment after that, which could line him up to make his return to the rotation as early as Aug. 3 at Fenway Park vs. Cleveland or Aug. 8 at Kansas City. Wells threw three effortless innings under simulated game conditions on Wednesday at Fenway and, barring a setback, could bolster the rotation in the same manner as a trading-deadline deal."

Peter here. You know me. And this is such great news. Boomer won 15 games for us last year, and he knows how to pitch. Especially when his knee(s) are feeling better. So the gentle hints of good tidings continue to pile up, right in front of our wondering and happy eyes. Faith. Such a great thing.
