Whining Brian Wilson confronts Giants CEO after game..



In one of the oddest scenes you’ll ever see after a game, former Giants closer Brian Wilson walked to the Giants’ side of the field after tonight’s 3-2 San Francisco victory, as Giants players were shaking hands on the field, to rail on team president Larry Baer for not getting his 2012 World Series ring.

Wilson’s actions stunned Baer and Giants officials, who said they tried repeatedly throughout the season to meet with Wilson so the ring could be presented, and that he never responded, even when the Giants invited him to the ring ceremony during the first weekend of the home season. “I don’t know why he decided to make a show of it and air his grievance tonight,” team spokeswoman Staci Slaughter said.

The Giants have tried to have a sort of mini-ceremony with former players when they get their rings, as they did in Toronto when manager Bruce Bochy gave Melky Cabrera his ring in a brief, private ceremony. That scene was repeated elsewhere.

But after tonight’s episode, Slaughter said, the Giants just sent the ring to the Dodgers clubhouse with instructions to deliver it to Wilson.

This guy can stick it. Another "it's all about me" Brian Wilson moment. If Giants team spokeswoman Staci Slaughter's question isn't purely rhetorical and she really wishes to know why he chose this night to make a a scene over nothing..it's because it was Tim Lincecum's final start as a Giant and because Wilson is still pissed over the Giants not picking up his option..

1. Maybe someone will stab him in the parking lot.

 



Oh and on edit: Coming from a "oh it's all about me Barry Bonds" worshipper, that's rich.

3. Is that all you got nowadays.

 

Grammar smack.

Dude--- you dissing a guy about a "me me" attitude is simply delicious. You and Cboy's worship of Barry back in the day was what kept most of us entertained.

4. Obviously, you didn't get it..

not that I'm surprised. I actually sort of expected it..

Hey, you calling out others for a "me me attitude" is just more pot meet kettle. You've exhibited that "Hey everybody look at me!" behavior since the first day I noticed you...no doubt it's been going on since you joined. Rather pathetic for a grown man, make that overgrown, but whatever gets you off. What amazes me though is that some people still fall for your routine....so I guess I have to give you some credit.

You conveniently forgetting your absolute love for anything Barry.

You're fucking hypocrite.

7. If you're referring to the death of Jonathan Denver...

 

a) it wasn't in the parking lot, but on a street corner a few blocks away.

b) http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_24189368/reports-suspect-dodgers-fan-stabbing-tells-father-it

The father of a Lodi man accused of fatally stabbing a 24-year-old Dodgers fan said his son told him he was defending himself in a confrontation after a Dodger-Giants game Wednesday night in San Francisco, according to a Lodi newspaper....

His father, Marty Montgomery, told the Lodi News-Sentinel that his son had called from a San Francisco police officer's telephone on Thursday. Michael Montgomery reportedly told his father that Denver had yelled, "Giants suck," at Montgomery's friend, who was wearing a Giants hat, the newspaper reported.

Michael Montgomery told his father that after his friend responded, Denver and others assaulted him and that Denver hit him over the head with a chair. He then stabbed Denver in self-defense, the father told the Lodi paper....




This 2013 photo released by the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office shows Jonathan Denver. Denver, who was fatally stabbed during a confrontation after a Los Angeles Dodgers-San Francisco Giants baseball game in San Francisco, was the son of one of a Dodgers security guard, the team said Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013. San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr said two people were in custody, and one of them will face homicide charges.
