C.J. Wilson Working The Oakland A’s Beat

By MJ Lloyd

C.J. WIlson is one of the few baseball players I follow on Twitter (@str8edgeracer) because he actually tweets and usually has something interesting to say. He might even be able to parlay it into a journalism gig after he’s finished pitching in the majors. Wilson is off to a good start with this mini-scoop.

The Oakland A’s signed outfielder Coco Crisp to a two-year deal which isn’t quite official because…

Okay, so Buster Olney and Jon Heyman don’t have to start looking over their shoulders just yet. But hashtagging hotstove does show Wilson has a pretty good sense of humor. Of course, sense of humor is pretty far down the ladder of what I look for in a starting pitcher. Somewhere between ability to put on own pants and mouth capacity for sunflower seeds.

He is likeable though. So if you’re not on Twitter (shame on you), go sign up and give him a follow. After you follow me (@MnkysThrwngDrts), naturally.
