David Wells: Baseball Analyst?
Yes, from here out, when you think of David Wells, you can think of insightful, honest baseball analysis, not drunken perfect games or hot dogs.
Well, you can still think of drunken perfect games and hot dogs, but now you have to think of breaking down game film, too, after Wells agreed to a deal to serve as an analyst for TBS on a "multi-year deal" as first reported yesterday by the Associated Press.
Evidently, the Atlanta-based bastion of Ted Turner sees Wells more as a Steve Phillips character than Charles Barkley. Wells is going to be part of a three-man booth, joining play-by-play man Chip Caray and either Buck Martinez or Ron Darling to fill out the three-man squad. Using a three-man booth in the regular season puts TBS in line with ESPN, which has added former Mets General Manager Steve Phillips to its traditional Sunday night lineup of Joe Morgan and Jon Miller for broadcasts this season (insert your favorite Fire Joe Morgan references here).
So, is Wells a good addition for TBS? What do people think? And if you had to choose a three-man play-by-play booth to call a Game 7 right now, which would you take, the new TBS booth or the Morgan-Miller-Phillips trifecta?
