David Wells has never been shy about letting his feelings be known. No filter on Boomer and he'll tell you like it is. He'll let you know how hungover he was during his perfect game, and he'll also let you know how much he hates umpires and how he wants to punch them. He was always a little bit of a hot head so it isn't a surprise he wanted to knock one out a time or two. After the recent events in baseball it's hard to disagree with him. Glad to see Wells has held onto all that pent up anger towards umps since he retired. David Wells vs Joe West in the next Rough N' Rowdy?
Jared: "Which unwritten rule in baseball would you nix?"
David Wells: "Right now with the game going.....I mean...I hate umpires. I'd have to find something we could do away with with these umpires. I mean, they just....you know what we should do is you should be able to bump them and do whatever. Actually you should be able to punch one of them if you want. Because there are a couple guys I wanted to punch over time. But you know, with the umpires they ruin the game I think. They're right a majority of the time and theres some great umpires, don't get me wrong. But its those ones that are douchebags, we should have free will at them."
