David Wells calls for Seligs Resignation over small sign dispute

Wells blasts Selig, calls for his resignation

Removing that sign was the final straw for Boomer. Apparently David Wells is really upset that Bud Selig made Steinbrenner take down the sign that apologizes for "Yankess" [sic] star players not being at spring training.  They are instead playing in the WBC.  

I'm not sure why this pisses off David Wells so much.  I don't think Steinbrenner should have to take down the sign either, but calling for Selig to resign is a nutty reaction.

"Bud Selig needs to resign. That's what he needs to do," Wells said in a story published in Wednesday's editions of the Hartford Courant. "He needs to resign and bring someone in who's capable of communicating with the players association and the owners, as well as the players, because there's so much hatred against Bud right now. It's a joke. Nobody likes him."
