  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. Don’t forget to go to the SF

  • it would be good to have wilson back not only for his pitching abilities, but for his image. The price would have to be affordable say around 4 mill for starters with incentives. He produces or he does not.

    The giants should also reaquire Ramon Ramirez instead of looking for needles in a haystack with Gaudin and the Herrera guy and since they won the world series, why not have splurged a litlle and bought a swisher or even resigned Melky, who was twice as good as torres and would have been affordable. Go figure.
