Avert your eyes if you’d rather not see a girly comment right here: “CJ Wilson is seriously cute.” There. I said it.
Now. About the baseball part of Wilson. With CC safely fronting our rotation until the end of time, we must turn our attention to acquiring a new starter. Wilson won 16 games for the Rangers this past season and threw 200 innings. While it’s true that his postseason record was abysmal and I can’t account for it, I still think he’s worth a serious look. He’s young, doesn’t have a terrible injury history, seems to enjoy the spotlight and isn’t wedded to Texas, having been born and raised in SoCal.
He’ll have plenty of suitors, including the Rangers, and I have no clue how much money/years he’ll command. But I just have this feeling he belongs on the Yankees. Think how much fun it would be to have a CC, an AJ and a CJ. I can just picture Girardi getting his initialed pitchers mixed up.
Seriously, here’s how I know CJ Wilson needs to be in pinstripes. The evidence is on this video in which he judges people’s tattoos. Look which one he picks as the winner.
