The Team Takes One for Well$

Did David Rush Back Because He's a Dough Nut?

"That's what my contract is, incentive-loaded. But there's nothing I can do. If I could turn back time, I'd do it. But I signed the contract and that's the situation that it's in. I have to deal with it.Yeah, I'm bummed by it. I'm not going to lose any sleep. My health is more important than the money. The money, it's nice to have. But if you're not going to get it from your incentives, then so be it." -- David Wells, who earns an additional $200,000 per start from 11-20 and $300,000 per start from 21-30 (comments made on 4.26.05)
