From the Unfortunate Quotes file, we get this gem from Vernon Wells in today's Star:
"My body is like a woman's body, it really is."
Well okay then.
The quote was given in the context of Wells' annual discussion of how he's gotten into shape in a totally different and more efficient way that will without question keep him healthy and at the top of his game for the coming season. In past seasons, there were discussions of blood tests and macrobiotic diets and such, to varying degrees of success.
Wells says he is planning to bring his trainer on the road with him to help keep him in shape throughout the season. And as we all know, when baseball players travel with their own personal trainers at all times, hilarity is sure to ensue.
We're just hoping that Wells is willing to share this weight maintenance expertise with a certain pink and round teammate.
