C.J. Wilson: The most interesting man in world


08:19 AM ET 04.04 | The Angels' splashy pitching signing doesn't lack for outside interests. He can recite poetry in Spanish, Japanese, Italian and Portuguese. ... He goes on safari in South Africa and hosted baseball clinics in Cape Town this past January for grassroots and elite players. ... He has started a children's charity that helps youngsters with hemophilia get through their hospital stays. ... He is ... Christopher John (C.J.) Wilson, the Angels' left-handed starting pitcher with bed-head-hair, with his back turned to the rest of the clubhouse at Tempe Diablo Stadium, his body facing his locker and his thumbs furiously tapping text into the smartphone. ... [Or, as Angels manager Mike Scioscia likes to say], "He is the most interesting man in the world."

Most songs about love are written for him, about him, or by him.
Years ago, he built a city out of blocks. Today, over six hundred thousand people live and work there.
He won the same lifetime achievement award. Twice.
He can speak French in Russian.
He lives vicariously through himself.
He once taught a German shepherd to bark in Spanish
He's been known to cure narcolepsy, just by walking into a room.
He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it felt.

the real test would be for CJ wilson in the angels team,, can he win at to 20 games and lose only 3 games the whole season?? because the angels know that weaver will be shaky from the start, as weaver has stated he will need time to get adjusted to their new catcher ianetta!!!
