Good old David Wells...

Postby TheYanks04 » Wed Mar 08, 2006 5:38 pm

Every now and then, a breath of fresh air comes out despute all the BS and bluster. Well said there Dave.

Rotoworld:
David Wells estimated that 95 percent of MLB players dislike commissioner Bud Selig and he's proud to be one of them.
"Bud Selig needs to resign. That's what he needs to do," Wells said. "He needs to resign and bring someone in who's capable of communicating with the players association and the owners, as well as the players, because there's so much hatred against Bud right now. It's a joke. Nobody likes him." Wells probably didn't say enough to get himself tagged with a suspension here, but there's a good chance this will help him draw at least one five-game penalty at some point during this season. "[Selig] worries about what people say about him and he Googles himself," Wells said. "I'm sure he's going to Google [his name] tomorrow and say, `Oh, there's Dave talking about me.' You know what? Be a man of your words. He's ducked me for two years."

Even though he is a loudmouth Wells makes a good point. The commissioner's number one priority is supposed to be the best interests of the game not the best interests of the owners.

He is not well liked among certain owners either...including George.

Huh? The owners hire/fire the commissioner. The owners own major league baseball (yah, I know, tautological). So the best interest of major league baseball is the best interest of the owners. The commissioner's job is not the best interest of baseball in some weird, theoretical sense.
