Brian Wilson?

Postby indycub » Fri Dec 28, 2012 11:04 pm

Brian Wilson anyone? Lights out before the Tommy John. I'd love to take a flier. He's reportedly down to 5 teams from 10. No word on any of the teams yet. Thoughts?

Normally I have zero problems when it comes to a player's personality or shtick or whatever, but [expletive] me, I [expletive] HATE this guy.

ABTY mentioned there's basically no interest in Marmol currently. Can't see us adding Wilson, if we've got Marmol and Fujikawa.

The Beach Boy or the pitcher? In either case, at the right price I'll take him. Marmol's on the last year of his deal, and if we could get Wilson on something with a low base salary, incentives, and team options, all the better. As for his personality, if he were on our side, I'd find it a lot more palatable, perhaps amusing.

SCS, I have to question your decision to sign the lead singer of the Beach Boys. Not as questionable as finding the pitcher amusing, but still

My overwhelming hate of his douchebaggery says no even though he logically could become a valuable trade piece.

It's hard to believe we could get him on a decent contract when he's got 5 teams interested in him.

The term "interested" is relative. It also depends on the root of the reports. If its the agent, if he called every team in baseball, and 5 expressed any degree of interest, be it on minor league or big league deals, he can then rightfully report that 5 teams are interested to work them against one another for the most lucrative deal possible.

Hey, at least it would beat another Eddie Vedder song. As for antics, I think that the only guy I wouldn't be able to tolerate no matter how good he was for us is Jose Valverde.

I was thinking the same thing. But who are the 5 teams? Also, how does he define interested? In agent speak, "They didn't laugh then hang up"= interest.

I can't imagine a few teams not offering at least something heavy in incentives. However, what it takes me back to is the reports that the Dodgers and Angels were both interested in Fujikawa, making it seem like the price would get out of hand.

[expletive], I love Valverede; that guy is actually emotionally imbalanced. Everything Wilson does is trying WAY too hard.

If I can like Jim Edmonds during his time on the Cubs, I can like anybody.

I still thought Edmonds was a hilariously mockable tool when he was on the Cubs; I just appreciated his ridiculous performance as well. That said, Edmonds seemingly can't help how lame he is. Wilson could stop being a jackass jerkoff in a heartbeat.
