What Happened In 2014: That was money well-spent!
Have we really not done a Brian Wilson review yet? Still? Sigh. I don’t want to do this any more than you do. Then again, it’s a cold January Sunday with little else going on. Fine. Whatever. Fair warning: This won’t be nearly as well-researched as when...
I’m pretty certain no one has mentioned the words “Brian Wilson” since the reliever was released by the Los Angeles Dodgers back on December 19. It’s almost as if he, wait for it, disappeared.
Turns out, he’s been in Las Vegas!

The Dodgers have released right-handed reliever Brian Wilson, according to the Los Angeles Times‘ Dylan Hernandez. Wilson was recently designated for assignment on Dec. 16, and though that gave the team 10 days to make a deal, it appears that the interest in him was minimal or non-existent.
That lack of interest is not surprising, as Wilson had a disaster of a 2014 season. He...
Let’s talk about Brian Wilson. Shut up, yes, we have to. After he helped to kick away Saturday’s game, I saw a lot of chatter online about how he didn’t “deserve to make the playoff roster,” and that’s what I was going to talk about today. I wasn’t going to say that he’s good — even the defense that he hadn’t given up an earned run in the previous month is somewhat...
Jeff Bridges bowled a strike during Friday night's Cubs-Dodgers game.
He was asked to throw out the first pitch, and that's exactly what he did. But as a tribute to his character in The Big Lebowski, The Dude bowled a strike rather than actually throwing it...
Strange things can happen in the early morning hours after a long rain delay. For example, Brian Wilson's doppelganger appearing behind home plate at Nationals Park with Brian Wilson on the mound for the Dodgers. He got pretty fired up after every pitch.

On Saturday, Brian Wilson had a very frustrating outing. He faced five batters, walked one, struck out one, and allowed two hits. He allowed one run (and allowed an inherited runner to score), but Kenley Jansen was able to close out the game in the ninth and sealed the Dodger victory. It took Wilson 23 pitches to finish the inning, and just 11 of them were strikes.
It seemed like...
In a lengthy process in which a transformation was made from eccentric bad boy into an unkempt, disheveled cretin, Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Brian Wilson finally has completed his devolution from man to bum. Wilson’s removal of his hat during Sunday’s game against the San Diego Padres revealed an abject, matted mess of nasty, […] The post Brian Wilson: You, my friend...
The Dodgers are be close to bringing Brian Wilson back. Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reported Tuesday morning the sides are making progress on an agreement.The Tigers were seen as the Dodgers' biggest competitor for Wilson's services, but they're close to inking Joe Nathan to a deal, thus ending their pursuit of Wilson.Wilson is said to want a 2-year, $20 million deal. After the...
