Flashback Friday With… Boomer Wells?

Forgive me if this has already been pointed out by less lazy bloggers than I, but holy shit, has anybody else taken a look at the list of players who have confirmed their attendance for the Flashback Friday night on June 5th, which commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Jays’ 1990 1989 AL East winning team?

Let’s see, there’s Jesse Barfield, Cito Gaston, Kelly Gruber, Tony Fernandez, Rance Mulliniks, Tom Henke, Duane Ward, and… ehrm, David Wells.

Am I way off base in thinking that the “silent, surly, cluelessly negative” fans of the team he’d rather “play for hell” than might not quite be ready to embrace their former ace– regardless of whether or not what he infamously said was, y’know, for the most part kind of bang on?

No, seriously, I have no idea how the fans are going to react. Anyone?

But shit, at least it means there will still be a reason to go out to the ballpark, at least for one night, in early June. Ugh.
