... as reported by the Star-Telegram's Drew Davison earlier this afternoon:
Mike Napoli doesn't know what prompted former Texas Rangers left-hander C.J. Wilson to tweet out Napoli's cell phone number.
Wilson, who has more than 116,000 followers, tweeted Napoli's cell out on Saturday. In the tweet, the current Los Angeles Angels starter acted like he was giving Napoli his number but instead put Napoli's number out for the public. Wilson eventually deleted the tweet, and called it a prank.
"I don't even know why he did it," Napoli said. "You don't do that. I am not taking it as a prank.
"You know, I haven't even talked to him since the end of last season. We don't have that type of relationship."
And now that we've been made aware of just how out of touch C.J. actually was in this "incident," Anthony Andro has compiled a list of C.J.'s other various and sundry blunders throughout the years, including the infamous ball flip and his perceived propensity for talking too much. Craig Calcaterra writes about how this probably constitutes a pretty open-and-shut violation of baseball's social media policy, but I find it hard to imagine he'll face too stiff a penalty even if Napoli decides to lodge his grievances through more formal channels.
If there's anything about this worth noting, it's that Wilson is probably going to receive one of the colder welcomes of any visiting player in recent memory when he comes back to Arlington.
