I wasn’t going to blog about this but when I saw what happened today I could not remain silent. Russell Wilson doing the whole spring training deal is the most cringey, disgusting site these eyes have ever seen.
I know he’s done it before when he was a “member” of the Texas Rangers but this time around it got a lot more publicity. It’s probably because he was traded to the Yankees and if there is anything besides LeBron and Tebow that the media loves it’s the New York Yankees.
So Wilson, the biggest goober on the planet, made a really awkward instagram video last week talking about how he’d be visiting Yankees camp and this whole week we’ve seen way, way too much of it. He was fielding grounders, hitting with Mike Stanton and apparently playing catch with Aaron Judge (needed him to break Judge’s leg like he broke E’s on the set on the Entourage movie).
Now today, he actually got an at bat in a game. Puuuuuuuuuuuuke. If I was the opposing pitcher I’d probably just have beaned him for having the audacity to step in the box. Luckily, this guy was a little smarter and just dropped a curve on him and then pumped a fastball by him. Sit downnnnn and never do this whole dumb look at me baseball thing again. Tim Tebow is annoying enough.
*It makes it worse that he’s in Yankee camp, but he could be anywhere, even with Boston, and I’d want this guy to trip over a sprinkler head.
