George is probably comtemplating that right now...

Plus I think Wells might be looking at his next career: being a more knowledgeable and fatter Kruk.

Reminds me a lot of pedro and the red sox.

as far as wells' comments go, like yanks04 said, definitely not something new. whether he was asked or not, he's entitled to his opinion on anything. don't mean to call you out again bronx, but remember when wells said he'd like to burn down fenway park a few years ago? i bet you wouldn't say crap about him saying that, but since he's on the opposite side now, it's a big deal.

He's never at loss for a quote because, as has been stated, in New England, the press will throw a mic in his face whenever something comes up, knowing it'll sell papers. They did it to Pedro too when he was there. They do it all over the place in New York and Boston. When Bobby Bonilla was a Met, they did it to him. It's not as if David Wells is seeking out these reporters to give them a piece of his mind, and if he was still a Yankee, I'll all but guarantee that's how you'd see it too. We'd hear about the cut throat New York media, and how it portrays him so poorly and this and that. I know, because it's exactly what we heard when Boomer was a Yankee...
