I think it's pretty safe to say that the season now rests on David Wells. We win, we sit merely 1.5 games back of San Diego with 16 games to go. We lose, we're looking at a much bigger 3.5 game deficit. Since Arizona looks pretty much uncatchable at this point, we need Wells to come up huge. I've said a lot of bad things about him up to this point, but if he comes through here, he could become a Marlon Anderson esque folk hero.
