ARLINGTON, Texas Texas fans, being fans and all, have wanted to boo Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson since he bolted for not-quite-Los Angeles in free agency this offseason.
A feeling that only grew when he:
1) Said Texas wasted his time by not giving him an offer sooner.
2) Tweeted Rangers catcher Mike Napoli's cell phone number to his 127,373 or so Twitter followers in spring training.
3) Refused to say "my bad" and instead chided Napoli for not having a sense of humor.
4) Presented himself as more esoteric, more genius, more lefthanded than everybodyan arrogance tolerated while in Texas and now detested on a rival.
So when Friday's game began long before an almost two-hour rain delay and eventual 10-3 Rangers victory that ended Saturday Wilson faced a wave of boos, or were they saying, well, a word that rhymes and requires a euphemism?
You know the thing from those commercials that make dudes cringe, the ones about that not-so-fresh feeling.
OK, they make everybody cringe.
