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 why Wilson would say he would want to pitch for the Dodgers…
He lives in Southern California during the offseason, so if he pitches for the Dodgers he can live there all year round. Which I’m sure most baseball players would really love to do.
His agent knows the Giants wouldn’t want to lose him to their rivals in Los Angeles, so why not throw that rumor out there to get the Giants to budge a little bit and offer a deal that Wilson is willing to accept.
Maybe Wilson knows his arm isn’t the same, and this is his last chance at getting as much money guaranteed rather than a low base salary with incentives.
