Tristan H. Cockcroft: Good morning everyone! Let's get right to your questions...

Chris (Dracut, MA): If David Wells is traded to a NL West club, what happens to his fantasy value for the rest of the year?

Tristan H. Cockcroft: I'm not convinced the Red Sox will get a deal done for David Wells in the next 14 hours, because from the sound of it yesterday, their asking price was rather high. A move to San Diego, San Francisco or Los Angeles, though, that'd be great for his fantasy value, since those teams play in spacious pitchers' parks, which would play to Wells' advantage. He has pitched quite a bit better of late, so if you own him, hope Boston does lower its asking price, because it'd be good news for his value.
