Joe Torre may have led the Yankees to six American League pennants and four World Series titles, but don’t tell that to David Wells.
Appearing on The Post’s “Pinstripe Pod”, Wells did not sugarcoat his feelings about his former manager.
“I never liked Joe as a manager,” Wells said. “He did stuff to me that he shouldn’t have done to anybody. But, you know, we all knew he treated certain guys different ways. But it was alright, we didn’t care if he talked to us or not. Joe and I are friends now, I respect him. Just the playing days. You don’t want nobody telling you what you can and can’t do. That’s just how we work.”
Wells played under Torre for four seasons — first from 1997-98 and again from 2002-03.
