Boston Red Sox pitcher David Wells got roughed up in his rehab start as Indianapolis spanked Pawtucket, 9-1, on Friday night at McCoy Stadium.
Wells, recovering from offseason right knee surgery, surrendered seven runs on six hits, while walking three and fanning one in five innings

Yeah, but the term "fan" is still a stretch. The hell with that guy.

I've really always been a fan of David Wells. I may be the only one on WSI. He's come out and said he feels really bad for the way things went in Chicago and had nothing but good things to say about the team. I will always wish him success

Not as bad as I felt!

In his autobiography, David Wells ripped Toronto baseball fans for being ignorant.

This discussion validates his assertion: Rogers Centre is the New Wrigley? (http://www.bluejayway.ca/forum/index.php?topic=10715.0)

Somebody needs to explain to these idiots that "the great tradition" started as a charade pulled over WGN (and all the other idiots inside the Urinal) by drunken bleacher bums throwing back worthless balls they originally brought to the game for autographs. They were PALMING the homerun balls!

Only complete idiots would fall for this stunt. Jack Brickhouse and Harry Caray, for example. (I'm pretty sure Arnie Harris knew what was going on, but he loved being "in" on the joke.)
:cool:

I can't believe what idiots these bleacher bums have revealed baseball fans to be. Now we have idiots from Iowa (and apparently Canada, too) throwing back real-life homerun balls because some unemployed midafternoon drunk supporting the Lovable Losers at the Urinal thought it would be funny 35 years ago.

"Hey, I think it's a wonderful idea ! That's what true fans should do ! Me and my pals invented that back in the glorious summer of '69. Boy oh boy, every day, we'd get up, go to Ray's Bleachers, tie a few on, and head on into Wrigley. I was the Bugle Boy you know, and they put those baskets up because of me ! Jobs ? What jobs ?! Heh heh...we would just sit out there, get a tan, drink beer, and cheer on those Cubbies ! Ahhh, those were the days. We really thought that if we threw 'em back, then the run wouldn't count !"

He looked awful last night as Toronto took batting practice on him. Suddenly trading Bronson Arroyo may have not been a wise move.

KW compiled a rotation consisting of fairly young and extremely durable starters. I guess Boston decided to go the other way.

They did it at the Brewer game on Sunday too when a Diamondback went deep. It was really sad. When the ball landed in the bleachers, the wave of people in leftcenter started a "throw it back" chant and less than a minute later it was over CLee and picked up by JJ Hardy. I just shook my head in shame.

It really is getting to be pathetic. The one time in your life you have the opportunity to catch a major league home run and just because it's from the opposing team, you throw it back like a moron. You don't catch homeruns everyday people. This pathetic practice has even festered its way into Cincinnati.

I went to Pawtucket tonight and watched as David Wells served up batting practice to Indianapolis. He looked AWFUL He should try throwing a towel instead, its principal advantages being that a.) it saves wear and tear on the arm, and b.) it doesn't travel very far when batted.

At this point, Dave Wills could probably pitch better, too.

I stand in the minority on this one, but I actually think throwing HR balls back on the field is a funny tradition... AT WIRGLEY FIELD ONLY. I think it's stupid when done anywhere else.
