Although it seemed that Wells would leave Toronto to command 20 million elsewhere, his representatives met with the Blue Jays yesterday and a deal could be finalized next week. Wells, who will receive the biggest contract in Blue Jays history, batted .303 with 32 HR, 106 RBI, and 17 RBI. He will command about 18 million dollars annually, one million more than Alfonso Soriano.
