You can buy Vernon Wells' Mansion

Wells' $8.5 million mansion in Westlake, TX is for sale:

It comes with its own batting cage - which I assume has never been used.

I'd buy it if it was in Westlake Village.

Why is there so much animosity toward Vernon Wells?

I understand people hating the trade and being upset at the GM.

Wells was never a jerk and clearly did his best.  He was always positive.

No, I have no problem with Vernon Wells.  Bad trade for the Angels but how about a little discipline in how we process it?

Wells sucked as an angel. But he wasnt a bad guy. He was very liked by his teammates. Supposedly treated the younger guys really well. So i "like" him.

Still fair game to make jokes, though. Id try to make one, but the unused batting cage is tough to beat.

One of the best stories I've ever heard of a player dishing out the smack to a fan is about Wells...

"It was the usual stuff," Wells said yesterday. "Stuff like 'You suck' or 'You like men'.

"One guy was also yelling at me to give him a ball. He said that Torii Hunter (of the Twins) had given him a ball."

So Wells decided to do something. Between innings he got a new ball and wrote a message to the fan, then when he went back on the field the next inning he tossed it to him.

The message?

"Here's your ball, now please tell me what gas station you work at so I can come and yell at you when you're working. Please sit down, shut up and enjoy the game. From your favorite centre fielder, Vernon Wells."

Props to Wells...
