According to CBSSports.com guy Scott Miller, there are 5 teams that Brian Wilson can choose from, there is plenty of interest in the guy. That list was cut down from 10 teams by Wilson himself... read Miller's Tweet HERE. Bruce Jenkins of the San Francisco Chronicle (HERE) believes that the Giants could definitely have Brian Wilson back, but one thing is clear and he writes it in to the first part of his piece saying: "You get the feeling the Giants would love to have Brian Wilson back, as long as he understands something: Spring training begins with Sergio Romo as the closer."
You have to assume the Yankees would NOT be involved in any part of this as they already have plenty ideas to bridge to Mariano Rivera as well as a second closer in guys like Joba Chamberlain and David Aardsma. That being said, we here at BYB have always appreciated the talent Wilson has, as well as the antics... and... beard. Read I'D LOVE TO SEE THE BEARD IN THE BRONX. One thing wrong with that statement...the beard would come off in the Bronx. One main reason I am sure in Brian Wilson's eyes why he would never set foot in the Bronx.
Stay tuned... I'm eager to find out where he's go.
