David Wells once again has no clue

    Wells says Torre is a punk for spilling the secrets of the clubhouse.

    "What we do as athletes, that's our problem, our business, and a lot of guys have come out and destroyed that," Wells said. "That's why they don't have any friends. You just don't do that, and that's what Joe did. When you break the code, you're a punk."

    Wells, of course, squawked so much in that book the Yankees nearly suspended him. http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9E0DE2D91F3CF930A35750C0A9659C8B63&sec=&spon=&pagewanted=print

    Fucking jackass. Doesn't he have some fourth-rate rock stars he can follow around the country instead of spewing his usual idiocy on the radio?

    Well, he was never known for having a brain.

    I heard Torre also considered the wife-beater shirt and chopper for his cover.

    The White Sox are still waiting for their no-performance refund from that waste of oxygen.

    OK, and in this battle, I'll take Torre over Wells every time, but Torre is being equally inconsistent.

    A public figure talking out of both sides of his ass? Shock!

    Reminds of an interview with Martina Navratilova, where she complained righteously about the plight of blacks in the US. She lived in Vail, where you had to get on a plane in order to see a black person.

    Read John Harper's column in the NY Daily News today to find out why Wells' reaction to the book proves Torre correct. Wells is an idiot. While Torre may have been wise to leave this alone, I'll still trust his credibility over Wells' any time.

    With few exceptions, I really don't understand why anyone making significantly more than minimum salary feels the need to write a book.

    You can never be too thin, or too rich.
