Found February 07, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
While San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said general manager Brian Sabean decides which players the team signs, he wouldn’t call the “door’s closed” on free agent right-hander Brian Wilson, according to Chris Haft of MLB.com. Emphasizing that Sabean decides which players to sign, Bochy said, "I can't say that [Wilson] will be back." But, Bochy added, "I can't say the door's closed on Brian Wilson. ... I don't think that's completely shut." Last month, Sabean expressed doubt that San Francisco would re-sign Wilson, considering the “arduous rehabilitation” the team’s former closer is facing. Wilson continues to recover from his second Tommy John surgery. However, Bochy said that he doesn’t think the door is completely shut when it comes to Wilson. Still, it appears that it will take time for the Giants or any team to make a decision on Wilson, as his arm is still not back to full strength. Until this happens, the right-hander is likely to remain a free agent as he continues his rehab process. Wilson has spent seven seasons with the Giants, five as the team’s closer. From 2008-11, the 30-year-old maintained a 3.00 ERA with a 2.65 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Tim Lincecum officially unveils new haircut

> Tim Lincecum has gotten a haircut. Actually, it appears he has gotten several of them. Back in December, rumors swirled that the San Francisco Giants pitcher had chopped off his long, flowing locks. There was photo evidence at the time, but it was a bit blurry and there were some skeptics who refused to believe it. Now, it’s official. Lincecum was one of the biggest stories...

Sergio Romo, Brian Wilson make appearance in ‘Jeopardy’ answer

Via @kyliehults on Twitter comes this answer about Giants closer Sergio Romo and Giants closer emeritus Brian Wilson on Tuesday’s “Jeopardy” episode. I wonder what the correct question is. “What is a nose ring?” “What is a Mike Tyson tattoo?” Man, I’m stumped. [H/T Sergio Romo]

Tim Lincecum Has a New Look

San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum made a change this off-season.  He’s gone with the ever-more popular hipster-athlete look. I don’t think anyone can blame Lincecum for making a change. Even though the Giants won the World Series,  ”The Freak” had a terrible year. In 2012 he went 10-15 and gave up a career worst 111 runs. New year, new look for @timlincecum: twitter...

Tim Lincecum Cuts Hair, Now Looks More Like Joseph Gordon-Levitt Than Mitch From ‘Dazed and Confused’ (Photo)

For years now, Tim Lincecum has been sporting some rockin’ hair. Often saying it was one of the few things in life he could control, Lincecum’s black locks were a big part of his image — no matter how much he looked like Wiley Wiggins playing Mitch in the film Dazed and Confused. Well, now Lincecum has a new look. On Friday, Lincecum showed up to a Giants team event sporting...

New-look Lincecum ready for a comeback with Giants

Sporting short hair and specs he doesn't need but chooses to complete his new look, Tim Lincecum looked nothing like the hard-throwing San Francisco pitcher the Bay Area has come to know for his shaggy `do and strong arm. Lincecum drew comparisons Friday ranging from Buddy Holly to Elvis Costello and even Greg Maddux. Silicon Valley smarty, to poet and professor. A transformed...

Sergio Romo, Giants agree to 2-year deal

The Giants on Wednesday agreed to a two-year contract with closer/photobomber Sergio Romo, avoiding arbitration. Romo was the final arbitration-eligible Giants player the team had to to agree on a new deal with. While details of salary aren’t clear, Andrew Baggarly reports… it’s expected Romo and the club settled in between the club’s $2.675 salary filing and the right-hander’s...

A last look at Candlestick Park

Candlestick Park, the iconic home of the San Francisco Giants from 1960 to 1999, will be demolished after the conclusion of the 2013 NFL season. Known mostly for the fog, the dampness and swirling winds, the ballpark was the scene of numerous famous – and a couple of infamous – events.   Here then are [...]

LOL Mets

Yep, so everyone who was involved in that 2011 deal between the New York Mets and the San Francisco Giants are now on the Giants, and the two players traded to New York are back on rather inexpensive deals, at that.  Oh, and the Giants won the World Series. So, LOL Mets.  Angel Pagan got pretty damn good when he came to the Giants, and both Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez were...
