Rockies Sign Two Crappy Pitchers

Kip Wells will not help the Rockies to another World SeriesThe Colorado Rockies added two pitchers on Wednesday, agreeing to one-year deals with former first-round draft picks Kip Wells and Mark Redman.

Wells, a 30-year-old righty, had a lousy 7-17 record with a 5.70 ERA for the St. Louis Cardinals last season, and is a career 64-91 in 231 career games with four different big league teams. He will be paid $3.1 million by the NL Champs, with a shot at making another $1.5 million in performance bonuses, which is highly unlikely.

The 33-year-old Redman, who was signed by Colorado in late August from Atlanta, went 2-0 with a 3.20 ERA in five games for the club last year. The lefty was a combined 2-4 with a 7.62 ERA in 11 games between the Braves and Rockies.

Oh my LORD, balls are gonna be flying out of Coors more than EVER this year with those two schlubs manning the hill. Get your leftfield seats now, and keep an eye on your nachos, cause they'll be getting pelted repaetedly by 100mph line shots off opposing bats.
