Steven Robles interviewing Brian Wilson at Media Day (Feb 2012).
It still remains to be seen if Brian Wilson will have a change of heart and return to the San Francisco Giants or if he will look to continue his career elsewhere.
Buster Olney of ESPN.com says (via Twitter) as the market continues to play out, Wilson is expected to wind up with opportunities to be a closer. He’ll have some choices to make.
I really don’t think it’s the opportunity to be a closer that’s really going to be the deciding factor. Let’s not forget he’s coming off his second Tommy John surgery. It’s likely going to come down to who offers the most guaranteed money. I mean let’s face it, Wilson must have doubts in his mind that his arm won’t be the same.
If he re-signed with the Giants, Wilson would eventually find himself back in the closer role if he’s back to the Wilson of old. That’s no knock on Sergio Romo, but Wilson would get his job back if he’s back to his 2010 form.
