Think Red Sox-Yankees is intense? It looks like Rangers-Angels is starting to heat up.
Before even playing a regular season game in 2012, we’be already seen the following:
1) CJ Wilson tweeted Mike Napoli’s phone number.
2) The Rangers decided not to start Yu Darvish against the Angels in exhibition play Sunday, pitching him instead in a minor league game.
3) The Angels quickly followed suit, pulling Wilson from starting Sunday against his old team and pitching a minor league game himself.
The regular season is two weeks away, but it sure looks like the games, or at least the gamesmanship, has already started.
