Before you read this, go back and read this. OK? Great. I won’t make you do that again every time we talk free agent stuff, but do please try to remember it.
Anyway, C.J. Wilson gave an interview to Scoreboarddaily.com and said this when asked if he might return to the Rangers:
Yeah, there’s a great chance because I like it here and I’ve won here. I’ve proved that I can be a good pitcher here.
The Rangers could certainly end up being the most desirable suitor for Wilson’s services. Indeed, rumblings out of the Yankee Universe — long thought the most likely team to bid on Wilson — have grown decidedly negative lately, and weren’t helped at all by Wilson’s lackluster postseason. But ultimately — as is the case with every free agent, money is going to play the largest role.
All things being equal, sure, Wilson chooses to stay where he’s comfy. But when was the last time all things were equal in the upper end of the free agent market?
