Don’t rule out Brian Wilson to the Mets just yet

Jan 17, 2013, 8:53 AM EDT

Yesterday Mike Puma of the New York Post reported that the Mets were unimpressed with Brian Wilson‘s audition. Marc Carig of Newsday reports, however, that there’s still a chance for these kids to make it work:


I noted yesterday that Wilson may have an incentive to wait things out and make a deal with someone midseason when he’s got more strength and, presumably, more leverage. By the same token, the Mets may have an incentive to showcase Wilson themselves, and if he is somewhat effective and healthy, flip him to a contender in the middle of the year.

    Probably because the Mets currently don’t have a closer.

      Let’s be real here, we all know that John Franco is always just a phone call away. Hell, with Johnny Franco, there’s a good chance that he’s probably just a couple of subway stops away.

      Give the kid a call, he’s gotta have some gas left in that arm.

        The Mets don’t actually need a closer, since they are used to save late inning leads.

        I kid Mets fans, I kid.

        But seriously they’re not going to have a very good team this season. I wouldn’t be spending a fortune on a closer.

    Wilson’s act has grown old. The Mets are welcome to him.

    I’d almost rather sign Wilson to a contract with an option year than just a one year deal. Kinda like what the Yankees did with David Aardsma.

    Rule out Brian Wilson to the Mutts? Hell, that would be like ruling out Herman Melville to the Berkshires!
