What's Happened to Wells?

What on earth has happened to Randy Wells?

Since beginning the season 3-0 in April, Wells is just 2-5 in his last 10 starts, including a current five-game skid.

Opponents have adjusted to the sinker-baller, and Wells hasn’t managed to find an answer.  That’s not out of the norm for a sophomore hurler, but Randy’s confidence is clearly shaken…maybe to the point the Cubs should consider skipping him a turn in the rotation.

Is the lack of run support–he gets about two per game–making him press? Maybe he’s battling an unknown injury? Who really knows?

But when a guy of Randy’s talent can’t get out of the first inning, you know something is up…perhaps, something other than pitching is making Wells try too hard?

I had this guy pegged for at least 12-wins this season, but even double-digits seems unlikely at this point. Of course, it’s just one of many frustrating problems with the Cubs…Randy Wells just happens to be the latest.
