"It's highly unlikely that Wells would retire if he weren't dealt to a team closer to his San Diego-area home.

"No?

'''What I can say,' Clifton said, 'is David has always been a popular teammate, because his teammates know he's the ultimate gamer every fifth day. I think David's plan is to focus on getting ready for the season.'"

"Translation: Even when he wants to be dealt, Wells is going to get ready at his own pace." -- 2.28, Chris Snow, Globe Notebook
