It was the Yankees, Joe Torre and "Boomer" Wells

Say what, say what, say what?
The New York Yankees are considering whether to ask for confidentiality clauses in future contracts with managers and coaches following Joe Torre's book on his 12 years with the team.
In [his] book, Torre says, "The difference between Kevin Brown and David Wells is that both make your life miserable, but David Wells meant to."
"I've always said if you weren't Joe's boy, he could care less about you," Wells said. "He ran his tight ship the way he wanted to. Don't get me wrong, he is not a bad manager. I just thought he was a bad individual, because of the fact he didn't treat everybody the same. He had his boys. He let certain guys do their thing. He wouldn't let other guys do other things." Still, Wells said he would buy the book. "I'd like to go buy the book," Wells said. "He can have his 27 bucks. It doesn't matter to me. Just to read it to see how much BS is in that."
