C.J. Wilson: You Can Only Prank People With A Sense Of Humor, I Guess

Wilson broadcasted Mike Napoli's phone number over Twitter during the offseason



    Since leaving Texas, C.J. Wilson hasn’t made many fans in North Texas, and his recent remarks concerning catcher Mike Napoli and the “prank” in which he broadcasted Napoli’s phone number on Twitter probably won’t help much.

    Wilson did his best explaining the prank, before more or less suggesting that Napoli didn’t have a sense of humor.

    "I thought the part that was supposed to be funny was that I made it look like I was giving him my phone number, so everybody that would call him would be like ‘Hey C.J. and then he’s like this isn’t C.J.! This is Mike Napoli!' " Wilson said, per the Dallas Morning News "People would be like oh my gosh it’s Mike Napoli, which is kind of funny when you think about it, but nobody liked it besides me and my friends and my teammates and people on the Rangers didn’t think it was very funny, so whatever."

    "Sometimes you take a risk like that and you risk some sort of negative backlash or whatever, but I’m not an expert level prankster. I’m just a guy that likes to throw pranks once and awhile. I learned my lesson. You can only prank people with a sense of humor, I guess."
