Sure, the Angels owe enough Vernon Wells enough money through 2014 that, if Vernon wanted to, he could fund the development of an exciting new breed of pygmy gorillas (the house pet of the future! Call me, Vernon. We’ll change the world of domestic animal husbandry!) without batting an eyelash.

Though Wells is showing flickers of life these days, he will never ever earn the pay cheque he receives. That said: amazing highlight reel catches like this are a nice attempt.

The relief Ervin Santana clearly feels, after resigning himself to surrendering yet another homer the moment the ball leaves Infantes’ bat, when Wells pulls in this bomb back into play as to be worth a couple bucks, right? Vernon is just doing his part, trying to be good in the room, you know?
