C.J. Wilson Picking Between Marlins, Angels

Here's where we stand right now: C.J. Wilson showed up to the winter meetings Wednesday night. On Wednesday night, he will meet in person with both the Miami Marlins and the Los Angeles Angels. After the meetings, Wilson could quickly arrive at a decision. Like, Wednesday night. It's possible. Maybe it's probable. "Maybe it's probable" is another way of saying "it's possible."

What is Wilson deciding between? The Marlins are rumored to have offered him a six-year contract, which is what he's been looking for. The Angels, meanwhile, are thought to be stuck on five, and very reluctant to budge. Based simply on contract offers, it looks like the Marlins have the edge. But Wilson is a southern California native, and he's quite fond of the Orange County area, so then that gives the Angels an edge. Which edge is bigger than the other edge? How am I supposed to know? I'm not a scientist. Anymore.

It's funny that we're talking about all this in terms of years without knowing anything about salary. I mean, we can kind of guess at the salaries, but what if the Angels have offered $100 million over five years, while the Marlins have offered ten dollars, literally just ten dollars, over six years? Then there would be egg on our faces! And the Marlins' faces.
