SAY WHAT?

Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson commented on his former team, the Texas Rangers, which invested in Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish and didn't make Wilson a formal offer. "They're entitled to do whatever they want," he told me. "It's their money. I got upset that they kept saying, 'We're going to make [you] an offer.' It wasted my time." ... MLB Network's Kevin Millar, the former major league first baseman, doesn't like the Nationals' putting Stephen Strasburg on a strict pitch count. "It's the big leagues," Millar said. "If you make the roster, you should be able to perform to your ability all season long." ... Golf Channel's David Feherty thinks Tiger Woods needs to change his strategy and stop trying so hard: "Just play like it's fun, because all this work, it's not working." ... Former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden hopes NFL teams don't hold his age, 28, against him in the draft this month. "Treat me like I'm 22," said Weeden, whose college football career was delayed by a stint in minor league baseball. "I don't think many people plan on playing 20 years in the NFL."
