What a revelation for Vernon Wells.
After being booed for two seasons by the Blue Jays faithful, the club’s centre fielder now knows what he has to do to win the fans’ love back.
Which is … flirt with the American League batting title and rewrite the Major League record book for home runs and RBI.
Discovering the cure for most major diseases wouldn’t hurt either.
Who knew it could be that easy?
Prior to Monday night’s home opener, Wells was hitting .350 with four homers and seven RBI in six games, which put him on pace this season for 108 homers and 189 RBI.
And when he was introduced before his first at-bat at the Rogers Centre, he was cheered.
And when he smashed a homer to deep centre field, with Adam Lind on board, to give Toronto a 6-4 lead, he was cheered even louder.
So it’s simple, really.
Put together the greatest season ever by a major leaguer, and all is forgiven.
Unfortunately, it’s unlikely Wells will continue his now-116 home run, 208 RBI pace.
