Was Wells Focused on Winning the Opener?

Thursday: "Queen Latifah celebrated the release of "Beauty Shop" Thursday at NA nightclub (Wells is one of the owners) with Dean Winters, Moises de la Renta, Alexandra Richards and former Yankee/current Red Sox star David Wells, who showed up a day earlier than expected on his private jet." -- Richard Johnson, New York Post

Thursday: "David Wells may be back to his old shenanigans. Rumor has it he was out partying Thursday night until the wee hours of the morning at N.O.D., (meaning NA) a bar in NYC." -- Jennifer Royle, YES Network Online

"On Friday, he (Michael Strahan) was spotted by a reporter at popular nightclub NA, partying into the night with Yankee-turned-Red Sox hurler David Wells..." -- Jen Kelly and Jeane Macintosh, New York Post

Lupica: "Boomer Wells pitched dreadfully for the Red Sox. Wells is said to have been in New York since late last week. They have an expression in the Navy that sort of covers a situation like this. It is called shore leave." -- Mike Lupica, New York Daily News

Balking on Rent?: "The balk came after Wells visibly reacted to the inability of new shortstop Edgar Renteria to get an out on Jorge Posada's roller into the hole, the ball refusing to stick in Renteria's glove as he attempted to backhand it." -- Gordon Edes, Boston Globe

Fingering Tek?: "I was stepping back and I thought I saw a different finger down..." -- David Wells
