David Wells to Texas?

Evan Grant touches on the Josh Rupe fallout, and for the first time, a specific name is thrown out there as a possible trade target for the fifth starter spot:

According to The Providence Journal, the search could include Wells. The paper reported the Rangers have discussed his availability with Boston, which has been shopping the lefty off and on all winter. Rangers officials did not comment on the possibility of looking outside the organization for a fifth starter.

Wells would seem to be a good fit in the rotation, particularly since the Rangers want a lefty in there, but his personality would seem to be a bad fit with Buck, and the BoSox are going to be asking for a fair amount in return.
