I want to criticize everything about the article, video, and headline, but cannot come up with anything that doesn't make me sound like Comic Book Guy.

That's the hardest Wells has hit anything in a long time.

Full speed? Um, no.

Crewmannumber6: Full speed? Um, no.

This isn't the mid-aughts Vernon Wells who swiped close to 20 bases a few times. The 2012, pudgy, older, quite visibly indifferent Vernon Wells I do not think runs any faster than what we saw. 

/I might be hatin' too much on him. He is actually a really nice and funny guy in person.

The rule is the guys in the front row get to keep him as a souvenir, but it's just Vernon Wells so they threw him back.

Did he let off some steam?

Full speed - I think not.
Was hoping for a stretcher.
Leaving disappointed.

Not full speed, and would have been impressive had he caught it.

2012-09-19 01:44:38 PM bout that?!

december: poor Pujols jersey guy ... never got his fist bump from Vernon for helping him up.

One of the later views on the Must C clip shows that he did (skip to 1:35).

True. Torii Hunter's son, Darius? Well, that's a different story.

I've always liked Vernon, but I'd also have liked it if I saw him hustle on a play like that as a Blue Jay. Even once.
