For A Really Bad Time, Call Mike Napoli

Posted in Baseball, twitter twatter at 3:01 pm by

On Saturday, Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson (above)  tweeted the cell phone number of former teammate, Texas’ Mike Napoli.  The unamused Napoli tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Drew Davison, “I just think it was uncalled for.”

“I don’t even know why he did it,” Napoli said. “You don’t do that. I am not taking it as a prank.

“You know, I haven’t even talked to him since the end of last season. We don’t have that type of relationship.”

Wilson tweeted this later: “Okay I think we’ve all had a good time, I’m even with mike for saying he can’t wait to hit homers off me.”

Napoli doesn’t remember saying he wanted to hit home runs off Wilson specifically, and was confused why Wilson took it that way.

“I don’t even remember saying I want to take him deep,” Napoli said. “But as every power hitter, you’re always trying to take pitchers deep. So I’ll say it now, I’m going to try and take him deep.”

Persons with a keen sense of internet history will note this is not the dumbest thing Wilson has ever done online.
