"I got away from what I need to do (in 2011).I was trying to hit the ball 500 feet, when you don't have to do that. I never thought of myself as a home run hitter, but I got caught up in home runs. I never used to try to hit home runs. They came when I elevated line drives.' - Vernon Wells on MLB.com (Lyle Spencer, 11/18/2011, 'Wells anticipates spreading wings with Angels', Source )
