    Texas Rangers catcher Mike Napoli can't quite figure out why Los Angeles Angels pitcher and former teammate C.J. Wilson felt the need to send his phone number out on Twitter.

    Wilson sent a tweet acting as if he was giving his former teammate his number, but instead posted an old phone number of Napoli's. Wilson then deleted the tweet and called it a prank.

    Later Wilson tweeted, "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 said he hasn't spoken to Wilson since last season ended. He added that if Wilson had an issue with what he had said, picking up the phone would have been a better solution than going to Twitter.
