C.J. Wilson Has An Ax to Grind
Texas Rangers lefty C.J. Wilson is already Major League Baseball's best blogger. Now, he insists he's Major League Baseball's Guitar Hero. Unfair Park just got a press release from the Rangers, in which Wilson throws out this challenge: Thirty-two contestants will get the opportunity to strap it on against Wilson, Kameron Loe, Jason Botts and Wes Littleton in a Guitar Hero tournament next Monday at the House of Blues. The prize -- and I guess you could call it that, despite Texas being 194 games out of first -- will be a suite to an upcoming Rangers game.
You gotta win a slot to play; Live 105.3 is the co-sponsor of the event, and you'll need to tune in before you virtually tune up. It'll be a bracket-style competition, with the four top finishers getting a chance to face off against the Rangers' fearsome foursome. --Robert Wilonsky
