Russel Wilson Has Been Drafted By The Rangers. In Other News, The MLB is Making Me Feel Horrible About Myself
Though there’s certainly no indication he plans to switch sports any time soon, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was selected off the Colorado Rockies’ minor-league roster by the Texas Rangers during Thursday’s MLB Rule 5 draft.
Wilson, who played second base, was taken twice during the MLB amateur draft — once in 2007 by the Orioles before opting to attend college, then as a 2010 fourth-rounder by the Rockies. He played two seasons in Colorado’s minor-league system, one with the short-season Class A Tri-City Dust Devils and another with A-ball’s Asheville Tourists. – SI.com
Great! Not only is Russel Wilson the QB of one of the best teams in the NFL, but he was recently drafted, again, to the MLB. Wilson, a very good baseball player at the Collegiate and minor league level, decided he would trade his glove and bat for a helmet and football in last years NFL Draft. But that doesn’t stop the MLB from drafting him. Classic case of RGR (Rich Getting Richer) and MWTKH (Matt Wants To Kill Himself). Sitting in my doctors chair getting my toenail tore out yesterday is probably that farthest anyone has ever been from getting drafted into a professional sport.
