As the MLB playoffs are drawing near, there are beginning to be some questions from fans about the way things will shape up. One of those questions is about Rangers ace CJ Wilson. While he has had a good season, and has proven himself as a solid starter, fans are wondering if he can hold up and be the guy for a deep playoff run. He has never been the number one guy in the playoffs before and most fans are nervous if he can hold up to the pressure.
Wilson has shown this season that he can stand up to the pressure of being a staff ace. But now the playoffs are about to start and he will be asked to pitch on short rest, and depending on scenario, could be asked to come out of the bullpen. That may not seem like a big deal to most, but it is a pressure packed situation for a guy who just completed his first year as the number one guy. Wilson had a good season and looks poised to be the guy. Until he steps up and shows it to the fans, there will be a nervous crowd in Arlington for game one.
