Baby Boomer Couldn't Handle Eck's Heat in Boston ...
So He's Taking Shots at Him From 3,000 Miles Away

"Boomer on Dennis Eckersley, now a TV studio analyst in Boston: 'Have you heard him lately? He's terrible. It's like he never did anything wrong. You get that Hall of Fame [label] and you can say anything you want, but it doesn't always make you right. It could make you worse as an individual, and I think that's the way he's going. It's sad the way he dogs his own hometown. He's representing Boston. Say positive things, not negative things -- like how lucky they are. He had a big old strike zone when he pitched, so he was lucky too.' " -- 9.25.06, Graduation day nearing for Wells, ESPN.com

"A bit of an odd time for Wells to be popping off: Since being traded to the Padres, he is 0-2 with a 4.43 ERA in four starts, has pitched into the seventh inning just once, and with the Padres in a fight for a postseason spot, was scratched from his start last night against the Cardinals because of gout in his right foot." -- 9.26.06, Gordon Edes, Red Sox notebook
