Your frustration lies not in what Wells said but in the performance of the Yankees this year.


No, I can deal with my Yankee frustration. This guy just pisses me off.

If the reporter asks you a question, you say

I don't know and I don't care. I'm glad where I am and that's their problem."


right off the bat. You don't say what you think will happen, and THEN say you don't know and don't care. That's freakin' idiotic.

Why don't I see stupid quotes like this from Clemens, Pettitte or Soriano if there's nothing wrong with it.


That's Wells' way of speaking his mind yet seeming aloof all at the same time. Crafty.

I hope that's a joke.


It's not. I loved him when he was here and I laugh at him now that he's not. Do I wish he never left? Yep. If you are a good Yankee fan and you didn't like Boomer Wells while he was here you're full of crap.

I didn't love him. He brought alot of crap to the team his second time around. He writes a controversial book, walks of the mound several times after 1 or 2 innings because of his back, including Game 5 of the World Series. Why should I love Wells?

George is probably comtemplating that right now...

I don't see how that makes him any different from any other former Yankee? :-? ;-7

Yeah, that's pretty much par for the course in the Bronx.

Wells says exactly what most Yankee fans have been asying for a lonmg time, and all of a sudden he's "running his mouht".

:-b

Somebody probably asked him a question and he answered it... you goons can take any old mole hill and turn it into a mountain, can't you?

No, but what business is it of Wells? If he doesn't care, as he says he does, why does he get involved at all? It's laughable. It was the same deal in the offseason when he constantly talked about the Yankees.

Pettitte left the Yankees on bad terms. He's handled it in a positive way though. He doesn't deliberately talk about them like Wells continuously does. I just find it laughable that he says he doesn't care about them, but he's the ONE person that you can continue to find quotes from.

Wells said more after yesterday's game, including very gracious things about members of the Yankees organization, particularly Bernie Williams and Brian Cashman:


From today's Boston Globe:

''I don't know and I don't care," the Sox pitcher said. ''I'm glad I'm where I'm at. That's their problem, and you can go ask them.

''But I don't think George [Steinbrenner] is too happy. I think he's about ready to clean house, tell Brian to trade everybody and then fire him. I'll take him, though, because Cashman is a great guy. He's been good to me."



and


Outfielder Bernie Williams has been a recent target of criticism, and last night was benched in favor of Triple A outfielder Kevin Reese. Wells defended his former teammate.

''It's easier to get on Bernie because he's a lot older, and then all the questions come out that he might be over the hill," Wells said. ''I'll take Bernie on my team, any day."

if you dont care about wells why are you bringing this up? you could just as easily title this thread yankee fan thinks world revolves around him, starts running big mouth again. and i dont mean that as condescending as it sounds but right now i cant think of a more tactful way to say it.

as was mentioned earlier, someone asked him a question and he answered it. i dont see the problem with it. i think the main reason pettite, clemens, and those guys arent talking about NY is that they are no longer in the area. boston/new york media ask questions like that so they can sell papers. they stick a mic in front of wells or schil or whoever until they get something that will stir up some interest. midwest/south tend not to pander as much to sensationalism.
