Rangers draft Russell Wilson

On Thursday, the Texas Rangers selected Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft. Wilson is a former second baseman in the Colorado Rockies system but might be reluctant to pick up a second sport, given the level of success he has achieved as an NFL signal-caller. Should Wilson attempt to play baseball?
