3/29 Wells likes positive vibe

Randy Wells has a good feeling about the Cubs this year. Let’s start with Marlon Byrd.

“He’s awesome,” Wells said of the outfielder. “He doesn’t shut up. He’s always positive. I don’t think I’ve heard a negative comment come out of his mouth in Spring Training. Being a young guy, looking how he treats everybody. … I don’t think there’s a guy in this clubhouse who thinks they’re better than anybody or higher than anybody. It was the same feeling with the ’08 team. You see guys like Mark DeRosa and Ryan Dempster and Ted Lilly, and you think, ‘Oh my, God,’ and then they’re ripping on you like you’ve known them for 20 years. It’s the same feeling this year and it’s fun to be here.”

Wells was getting to the ballpark around 7 a.m. each day.

“I was one of the last guys,” he said.

“Everybody’s excited to come to the ballpark to get to work,” he said. “[At] 6:30, you park your car and there’s balls flying in the cage already.”
