Overheard during the Twins-Yankees gameDavid Wells, in the booth, going on about how the key to pitchers going deeper into games today is conditioning.
David Wells. Espousing the benefits of . . . conditioning.
I think I've heard everything.

If he didn’t specify good conditioning as the conditioning he meant, then it’s all good.
You never know with him…

“You keep using that word. I don’t think it means what you think it means.”

Not to ruin a snarky remark, but Wells started 25 or more games in a season fourteen times, beginning with his age-27 season, and started 125 games after turning 40.

It was right after they had Steinbrenner in there to talk about fiscal austerity.
And Dusty Baker had some words about the importance of using pitch counts to protect young pitchers’ sometimes fragile arms.
Then Jeff Francoeur inexplicably came on to talk about working the count and taking pitches.
Then Ryan Howard dropped by to talk about putting the importance of putting the ball in play.

David Wells talking about conditioning, is like David Wells talking about practicing moderation at the buffet table. It’s a contradiction of terms.
By the way, did anyone else think that there were WAY too many booth shots during yesterday’s TBS broadcast?

I lived in downtown Baltimore in the nineties and was a runner. I remember running down by the harbor when I came across two obese men “running” next to each other, though they were going slower than I walk. What struck me was the ugliest tattoo I had seen at that point in my life. It was a nearly life sized portrait of the face of a baby in a greenish-gray ink on a flabby arm. Who was this flabby connected to? None other than David Wells. The other portly man? Rocky Coppinger. Instant motivation to pick up my pace.
