The round mound of the pitcher's mound, David Wells, got tossed from yesterday's game versus the Diamondbacks after a bang-bang play at first base that didn't go his way. Needless to say he lost his cool, and after an ensuing argument with Umpire Doug Eddings, Wells claimed that Eddings insinuated that he was fat. Well, duh.
From the Times:
[Wells] said Eddings took [the argument] a step further as the umpire "rubbed his belly" as if to call Wells "fat."No idea what the "..." is for. Did he say, I would never ... rub my belly? Call a fat guy fat? Wear white shoes after Labor Day? What?
Said Wells: "Things started heating up and he was over there chirping and chirping and he tossed me out. Then he made a gesture ... that to me is stepping over the line. I take it personally."
"That's false. I would never ..." Eddings told the Associated Press.
Here's some video of Wells after the ejection courtesy of The FanHouse:
If Wells was in the NFL, he'd probably get a 25% of the season (four game) suspension for those throat slashes he was using, don't you think? Especially now that new sheriff Ricochet Roger Goodell is in town.
Although according to our pal over at The Hater Nation, it sounds like it might be entirely possible that David Wells is justified in his anger and that Mr. Eddings is simply a giant douche. That, or THN is just a big Angels fan. Go A.J.!!
