Since videos of Giants closer Brian Wilson are all the rage these days and because we aim to please, here is a pre-game chat with the fiery right-hander that our friends at CSN Bay Area put together.

Wilson talks about his recovery from a late-spring oblique injury, the Giants’ start thus far, staff ace Tim Lincecum, and the party that will greet Giants fans when AT&T Park is opened on Friday.

The Giants activated Wilson from the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday afternoon and will probably try to use him in a low-pressure situation during tonight’s game in San Diego against the Padres. He should be cleared to resume his normal ninth inning duties by the end of this week.

    Be honest, Drew: You wrote this just to have reason to post that picture.

    Good decision.

      Yeah, I’ll cop to that.

    As a Giants fan I can safely say most of the “chaos” so far has been our defense and hitting with RISP.

    Also, no more photos with Ryan Klesko in them please.
