OK, to be fair, maybe that means he just admired the club and how they did business or something, but this tweet from the New York Times’ David Waldstein sure isn’t going to do a lot of favours for the legacy of Vernon Wells in this town. And just when people were starting to realize that it wasn’t his fault he got offered a ludicrous contract!
Vernon Wells is here, said he was always quietly a Yankee fan, even in Toronto and LA. Will play tonight

I mean… really, Vernon? I guess all guys they have teams they follow more than the one they may happen to be employed by. And I guess he might just be trying to endear himself to his new club. But… really, Vernon? Really???
Vernon Wells is here, wearing 56. Excited to be a Yankee, said he tried to hide the smile when told of trade.

Holy tap dancing frig, I’m going to enjoy the fucking piss out of the Yankees’ demise.
