    From ESPN.com:

    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?

      I’d like to know what steroids have to do with his little run in with the umpires…

      This would never happen in the NFL or NBA. Taglibue and Stern run both leagues with an iron fist, if anyone lashed out at them then they’d get suspended or have to face a huge fine. Selig is figurehead with no power whatsoever, if he wants respect from players like Wells and so this doesn’t encourage other players from doing the same then he must go after Wells. I hope the Yankees crush that talkative fat bastard. I’ll never forgive him for Game 5 of the World Series.

      In defense of Boomer, that ejection was truly horrible. It ranks right up there with Sheff’s ejection earlier this season for throwing his helmet.

      I despise Boomer Wells. Now that we know my prejudice, here’s my opinion: Wells has a right to be upset – the ejection was horse-bleep

      I agree that the ejection was crap, but still, it has nothing to do with steroids
