Let's see what the ol' Rumor Mill is turning out:

David Wells to return to San Diego:
Padres: Clifton, the agent who represents left-hander David Wells, told the New York Daily News that he thought there was only a 25-percent chance the 43-year-old would pitch next season. And if Wells decides to return, it's probable that he will only pitch for his hometown Padres.
