If he wore glasses, Randy Wells wouldn't mind if you called him 4 eyes.
He'd play you in a game of 4 square.
In fact, they shoulda cast him in the recently not so well reviewed sci-fi thriller, "I Am Number 4".
Because he is number 4, even if nobody officially said it yet.
It was crappy out, and thus a glorious day to sit on the couch and watch the Cubs beat the Giants (split squad) 3-2.
A couple Giants got on early, and one even scored, but then Randy set down 18 in a row.
Seriously looked good - the ball coming out of his hand nice and easy.
And this kid Scott Moore is really having the Tyler Colvin-like spring.
I had to run to the store and heard Pat say he was a former #1 pick of somebody (Detroit?).
They had him at 1b and he made a tough pick-up, had one pretty wild throw get by, and made a fabulous catch of a foul ball and had the not-so-youthful presence of mind to whirl around and make a nice throw to the plate to keep a Giant runner on 3rd.
He also went walked and hit a double that knocked in a run and scored one himself.
And Marlon Byrd is hitting about .500 after getting hit number 20 of spring.
But after yesterday, I think the most important number is 4, as in the starting rotation.
Randy Wells locked it up.
Today it'll be Andrew Cashner on the mound vs. the Angels, and he could very well wrap up (hmm...what would that illustration look like?) the #5 spot.
And around Chicago the Hawks beat Phoenix last night 2-1 but may have lost Patrick Sharp to a knee injury, and on the South Side Jake Peavy appears to have rotator cuff tendinitis.
