Brian Wilson says he’ll be ready for Opening Day

Last Thursday Giants’ closer Brian Wilson strained an oblique muscle. On Saturday he had an MRI that revealed a mild strain.  Giants’ manager Bruce Bochy was guarded in his comments, noting that oblique strains can be unpredictable. My thinking was that, given Wilson’s missed time at the beginning of spring and now more missed time to close things out, that he wouldn’t be likely to make Opening Day.

He says otherwise, however, telling MLB.com’s Chris Haft that he’ll be ready. And Brian Wilson wouldn’t put anyone on, right?

Not much more to add here other than that it’s as unsettling as hell to see Brian Wilson without a beard now, so I’ve been looking for an excuse to post something about him so I could use this baby.  That is all.

    Yup. Natural born killer.

    Them peepers don’t line up and they’s too close together, too. If he was a horse, my old man would a called him a “narrow tween the eyes mule” and woulda used him for seat covering. I understand he’s (purportedly) human, right? Well, I’d kinda got used to that bear’s pubis look he had going there.
