Twitter reacts to Russell Wilson blockbuster trade

By Michael Dixon

While the MLB offseason has been relatively quiet, the New York Yankees made a splash on Wednesday by trading for Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Yes, you read that right.

Wilson handled the news in a very matter of fact way on Twitter.

The rest of Twitter brought the jokes.

CC Sabathia took it even one step further.

Of course, not everyone was so optimistic.

Of course, the fun is just starting. Wilson has been assigned to AA and will be in New York’s MLB camp. So just wait until Grapefruit League action gets underway.
