    Reds basher Keith Law bashed himself

    Per MLBTradeRumors.com


    Former Blue Jays assistant GM Keith Law stirred the pot a few days ago in his blog, mentioning that:

    "Vernon Wells has told Blue Jays' management that he has no intention of signing a contract extension to stay in Toronto."

    J.P. Ricciardi responded by calling Law an idiot, and Wells himself said the conversation was fabricated. While the drama here is amusing, let's take a look at some suitors for Wells if Toronto does make a deal this winter. It's potentially a long list.

    It's a real wonder how rumors get started, got to love the net and blogs.

    Anyone know the story behind the falling out between Ricciardi and Keith Law? I figured Law's contract just didn't get renewed, but this makes it sound like there's bad blood.

    The Jays are probably embarassed that Law continually toots his own horn by saying he was a former assistant GM.

    I used to talk/argue with him when he posted on rec.sports.baseball. I can tell you that he would not have good office "chemistry". Can you tell how pompous he is in his articles?

    Maybe he's a nicer guy in person, but when he writes, he doesn't come across as someone you'd want to hang out with.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I've met him, and he's very personable with a quick wit and a sense of humor. Speaking of sense of humor, it wouldn't surprise me if Ricciardi said this half joking. Member of media = idiot. Terry Francona once called Johnny Damon "d-u-m-b-a-s-s" in clear earshot of the media, after Damon had been publicly critical of Francona's managing. The two of them laughed it off, and made the playoffs.
