    He'll be signed before ST, so count the Mets out.

    If he's really got ways to go, then they won't sign him - and I wouldn't blame them.

    A roster spot is a roster spot, and money is still money. I'd rather that money go to a young pitcher that's healthy and vying for a spot in the pen than a guy who may not physically be able to perform (if that's truly the case).

    But if he's close to being ready, he's worth a small major league deal with production incentives.

    Clearly Frank Francisco was the one trying to close the door.

    Frank Francisco can't even close a door!

    Scarecrow: I don't know... But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking... don't they?
    Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

    Just thought I'd try and contribute a bit with this article I found on cbs. I heard Wilson's velocity still is not there - is this normal for his recovery date or whatever? I would not mind this at all if it was for a minor league deal for around 3M. Thoughts?

    Well the reason Wilson won't take a minor league deal is because none of the money is guaranteed unless he makes the roster.

    That's why he wants a guaranteed major league deal that has a base salary and will be incentive laden.

    We'll see what happens. Would still take him over Frank ANYDAY.

    Wilson had the second Tommy John surgery of his career last April and was non-tendered by the Giants following the season. Sabean is still open to bringing him back on a one-year, incentive-laden contract, but he expects that the bearded reliever will be “more in the mindset to do that with somebody else, than coming back with us.”

    Sandy Alderson told @JimBowdenESPNxm that #Mets intend to watch Brian Wilson again soon.

    Sandy: Still looking at relievers, especially for someone in the back-end. "Definitely a possibility" they can upgrade the pen. #Mets
