BRIAN WILSON NEWS

Brian Wilson exercises 2015 option, will be back with Dodgers

In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Brian Wilson exercised his $9.5 million player option on Monday and will return to the much maligned Dodgers’ bullpen in 2015. Sigh. Wilson signed a 2-year deal last offseason that included a player option, hence the reason he will return to the Dodgers. Oh, and the fact that he was awful and he would be foolish to walk away from...

Dodgers Rumors: Brian Wilson exercising 2015 player option

The Los Angeles Dodgers lost the NLDS to the St. Louis Cardinals in four games and head into the off season with questions following a 94-win season. At sixth in the league in both runs scored and team ERA, the Dodgers appear to have few holes to fill. One area that could be improved is the set up role, as Brian Wilson struggled. Wilson also appears to be exercising his option...

Can Brian Wilson Really Dial Up His Velocity In The Playoffs?

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...

WATCH: Jeff Bridges goes Lebowski at Dodgers game

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...

Brian Wilson look-alike fan goes a little overboard reacting to calls (Video)

Brian Wilson is one of the most unique-looking players in MLB, so it makes sense that he would have some fans trying to copy his look. In fact, one showed up to Nationals Park on Monday to cheer him on during the Dodgers’ 4-0 loss to the Nationals. The guy had the big black beard […]

Brian Wilson’s Doppelganger Spotted At Nationals Park

Your browser does not support iframes. A fan spotted behind home plate of Monday night’s LA Dodgers-Washington Nationals game looked eerily similar to the man pitching on the mound. As funny as Wilson’s doppelganger was, the Nationals announcer may have beat it out saying that the man “Buddy Wilson” was Brian’s brother. The post Brian Wilson’s Doppelganger Spotted At...

Brian Wilson’s Doppelgänger Was All Fired Up Behind Home Plate In Washington

To be fair, it’s not hard to be considered Brian Wilson’s “doppelganger.” All you need to do is shave your head, grow and gigantic black beard, throw on some Dodgers gear and…*poof*…you’re Brian’s brother, Buddy Wilson. Not only did Buddy have the look down, he also had pretty great seats and brought some serious energy. I mean, that guy was FIRED up. (GIF via...

Phillies 7, Dodgers 3: Wilson brought his gas can

“What’s wrong with Brian Wilson?” This was written by Ken Gurnick about Wilson after he blew the San Diego game on opening night. I criticized him for it, saying it was one game and he looked fine in Australia. Of course, he subsequently went on the disabled list, so something was kinda wrong with him. Now, Wilson has become unreliable after giving up two runs in the eighth...

Brian Wilson and Pitching Inside

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...
