Red Sox pitcher David Wells lashed out at Bud Selig after losing his appeal of a six-game suspension on Monday, drawing denials and apologies for the blustery lefty’s charge that the commissioner dragged his feet on steroids.
“I’ve been tested three times this year, but it’s obvious that there’s guys getting away with doing it,” Wells said during a pregame news conference. “And he’s not doing a thing.”
Wells’ comments drew a quick response from the players’ union, the commissioner’s office and an apology issued by the Red Sox.
“The comments made by David today regarding the commissioner of baseball do not in any way reflect the views of the club,” the Red Sox said in a statement. “The club believes the commissioner has demonstrated visionary leadership and integrity, and we recognize that his contributions to the game have been enormous. Thus, we apologize to the commissioner.”
Boomer being Boomer. I wonder if anyone in RSN is thinking of doing a site for David now?
