    The New York #Mets are showing strong interest in former #SFGiants closer Brian Wilson. GM Sandy Alderson watched him Sat in private workout


    "You don't know how to drink. Your whole generation, you drink for the wrong reasons. My generation, we drink because it's good, because it feels better than unbuttoning your collar, because we deserve it. We drink because it's what men do."

    Sandy Alderson watched former San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson in a private workout Saturday, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

    Wilson is returning from Tommy John surgery.

    “The Wilpons and Mr. Saul Katz — the people who say they don’t care about the team are sorely misguided,” Ojeda told the newspaper. “These are the biggest Mets fans you will meet."

    How about turning strong interest into action for once?

    I would LOOOVVVVEEEEEEEEE Wilson in a Mets uniform. Not only would he be a good closer, but he could make so much money for the team by selling jerseys, t-shirts, fake beards.

    He would be great.

    I hated this guy, kinda still do but I'd love if we added him to our team. I guess we can use a guy with his character too.

    Everyone here seems to be in favor of Wilson.

    Prediction: if we don't sign him, there will be screams about how terrible we are, how stupid and cheap we are, how we are not looking to improve, blah blah blah.

    Why not wait until the scouting reports and medical records are in? We don't know if he is really healthy or not. I don't want ANY wasted money, because as we all know, the funds are limited.
    I really should develop a sig, huh?
