    The source speculated that the Mets willingly would sign Wilson to a minor league deal now


    >>>They're not serious then.

    AdamRubinESPN I believe Mets would jump at signing Wilson to minors deal now, but that doesn't seem realistic. So we'll see how it plays out over time.

    AdamRubinESPN Wilson has been quoted being optimistic about Opening Day. Had TJ surgery in April. Source says, at least right now, still has ways to go.

    Wilson isn't going to sign a minor league deal that guarantees him next to nothing coming off TJ surgery or not.

    The Mets might not have loved what they saw to guarantee him a major league deal but that's what its gonna most likely take to get him.
    What I am saying it isn't a money issue as in they can't afford him. They don't want to give a spot to a guy who isn't healthy yet.

    She had the thickest, blackest bush I had ever seen until I saw Brian Wilson's beard.

    He looks creepy.
    That was Suzanna Hamilton. I remember it well, lol/

    Some of us hate these self aggrandizing douches who are all about themselves, he's the type of guy you want to smack in the face. However, desperation makes for strange bedfellows, so bring him in; if the arm is still attached.

    TJ surgery is obviously common for pitchers to come back from and considering the return we could possibly get from Wilson they should really make a run at him even if it might take till May or June till he is ready.

    He provides us a solid closer alternative if and more likely when FF fails.

    The money part isn't an issue with Wilson giving the circumstances.
    Incentive deals based on playing time and whatnot are always an option.

    I'd give Wilson a $2-3M base salary with incentives up to $7M.

    The worst that could happen is that he doesn't do well and he's gone after year 1. The upside of signing him is definitly higher than the downside is lower.

    Exactly.

    I also don't think there's ever been a move considered on this forum that just about each person thinks its a good idea. The only real argument against it is wait and see if he's healthy --- but incentive deal covers that base.

    It makes sense on just about every level.

    No chance it happens.

    Brian Wilson probably shouldn’t change his ring tone to “Meet the Mets” anytime soon.

    According to a baseball source Tuesday, the veteran closer didn’t impress the Mets during his workout at UCLA on Saturday and wasn’t deemed worthy of a major league contract at this point in his rehab from Tommy John surgery. Wilson, the source said, wasn’t interested in a minor league deal.

    “Physically, he’s not ready,” the source said. “He’s got a ways to go.”

    The source said if Wilson is still on the market during spring training, the Mets could hold another audition for him, but the Mets also aren’t in a rush.

    In the meantime, the Mets figure to pursue other bullpen options.

    The 30-year-old Wilson underwent Tommy John surgery — which generally carries a 12-month rehab — last April. But Wilson also underwent a previous Tommy John surgery, perhaps making teams more cautious in their approach.

    Wilson, a three-time All-Star, made $8.5 million in 2012 and was non-tendered by the Giants in November after they won their second World Series in three years. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson watched Wilson’s workout on Saturday.

    Wilson’s best year came with the Giants in 2010, when he went 3-3 with a 1.81 ERA and 48 saves.
