C.J. Wilson is one free agent who will be commanding huge bucks this upcoming MLB offseason. While an agent would probably advise its client to keep all options open to improve bargaining power, Wilson doesn’t seem to care. That’s how much he hates Oakland and everything about their baseball team. Either that, or he’s pulling the best free agent ploy we have ever witnessed.
“I hate pitching there,” Wilson told the Star-Telegram. “The mound sucks. The fans suck. There are no fans there. The fans who are there are really adamant, but sometimes you’ll go there and there’s 6,000 fans. I just wish the fan base supported them a little more.
“So, you don’t have to worry about me signing there in the off-season,” Wilson added after mentioning that he doesn’t even like the weather. “The players on their team hate me. Whatever. I don’t care. We’re rivals.”
I guess that cuts the list of potential suitors for the left-hander down a bit — not that the A’s would spend big bucks on a pitcher anyways. My only question is does the mound really suck or does it simply belong to someone else?Google+
