David Wells Remembers

From USA Today re: the Padres rotation:

David Wells says the Padres follow the lead of Peavy, who is 7-1 with a 1.68 ERA. Wells says the Padres' staff reminds him of the 1998 New York Yankees, when five starters each won 12-plus games, including David Cone's 20, Andy Pettitte's 16 and Wells' 18.

David had better keep mum about those 1998 Yankees comparisons, because no one on that squad was 9-9 with an ERA near 5 and a .310 batting average-against like Wells is projected to do for the Padres this year.
