Well this is an interesting possibility. Scott Lauber, former Phillies writer and current Red Sox writer for the Boston Globe had a very interesting reaction to FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal. Rosenthal mentioned that the Dodgers and Red Sox were possible landing places for Giants closer Brian Wilson. Lauber chimed in:
Now, of course, if the Phillies finish the trade with the Astros for Wilton Lopez, they may no longer have a need for Wilson. This is probably indiciative of Ruben Amaro Jr. turning over every stone in search of a dominant 8th inning reliever. Having missed 2012 with his second Tommy John surgery, Wilson is now expendable for the Giants thanks to the emergence of Sergio Romo, who was a dominant closer for the Giants' World Championship run.

I know you probably don’t want to see another post about Brian Wilson possibly heading to the hated Dodgers if he doesn’t come back to the San Francisco Giants.
Seeing a photoshop picture of Wilson in a Dodgers uniform has really got fans fired up. Some are ready to cut the umbilical cord between the Giants and their homegrown son Wilson.
Let’s take a step back, and see...
After the Yankees learned that Soriano had opted out of his contract. And if Mariano Rivera had decided not to return for another season, the Yankees might have felt insecure about the back end of their bullpen. And if Brian Wilson was non-tendered by the Giants as has been speculated, the stars might have aligned to bring Brian Wilson to New York. Can you imagine?
Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle points out that if the San Francisco Giants don’t tender a contract to Brian Wilson by Friday, he will becomes a free agent.
We have all speculated that the team would offer him a lower base salary with a ton of incentives if Wilson can produce on the field. I don’t think any Giants fans are ready to see the beard wearing any other...
San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson, who took the Bay Area by storm during the Giants World Series run with his beard-related hijinx, may not be long for the team. The Giants are reportedly kicking around the idea of nontendering Wilson by Friday's deadline, due to the closer missing nearly all of the 2012 season following his second Tommy John surgery and Wilson's desire...
The San Francisco Giants might be ready to trim The Beard. Right-handed closer Brian Wilson, known for his wildly long and dark beard, might not receive a contract offer from the team by the Friday deadline, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Players who aren't tendered a contract become free agents. Wilson missed nearly the entire 2012 season due to a right elbow injury...
With Friday’s deadline looming to tender Brian Wilson a contract. The San Francisco Giants are starting to hear the buzz of other teams that might be looking to add Wilson to their bullpen mix.
Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com says (via Twitter) the Red Sox could have interest in the New Hampshire native Wilson. Rosenthal also points out that Wilson lives in Southern California...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Before 12:01 a.m. Saturday, teams must decide whether to tender contracts to their arbitration-eligible players. Those who don’t get offers will become free agents.
One player worth watching: San Francisco...
The Rangers are favorites to land Zack Greinke, according to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register.
For what it’s worth, I was told today the #Rangers are the favorites for Greinke. It could all just be posturing now. Wait and see.
That goes against what Jim Bowden of ESPN said though.
Los Angeles Dodgers are considered the front runner for Zack Greinke according to source...
I know, I know, Romo has a beard…but it’s always changing. After all, he started this year with the Melky chinstrap beard, as many guys grew, before getting it bigger. Last year, there was the Millard Fillmore (which was my favorite.
The Many Facial Hairs of Sergio Romo
You simply can’t market something that changes so much.
And the others? Well, soul patches just aren’t...
