Sounds like he cant throw very well still.
From the article...
"He has indicated he will be ready for Opening Day, although a major league source said the reliever is not yet able to demonstrate in workouts that he is back to pre-surgery form.
The source speculated that the Mets willingly would sign Wilson to a minor league deal now, but Wilson agreeing to such an offer seems a stretch. As a result, the negotiation process will continue."
Wilson wants a high dollar guaranteed deal? Great. Let him wait until he can throw well enough to justify one...say, mid-season. If he wants to sign with a club before then, he's simply going to have to take an MiLB deal, or the type of incentive-laden deal the Giants already offered him.
The guy has another 2+ months to get his arm tuned up to get his guaranteed deal done. I don't think he'll cave on his contract demands until and unless it becomes apparent he's not going to get where he wants to be by then, performance-wise.
I agree with you. IMO his demands are really high he needs to be realistic about his situation. I think his best option is right back here and I would love to see him in Orange and Black next month at Spring training.
Remember when he was angry with our management for not giving him a qualifying offer?
Does he think we wanted him to be the cleanup hitter? We're not giving that much to a reliever coming off an injury.
"I have no sympathy for the guy. He's completely mishandled this situation and now he's paying for it"
I don't think he crossed any line. He is cocky somewhat, and wanted what he wanted. The Giants understand that. They have made him a good offer, I'm thinking he'll be back this year. I really do hope so.
because I don't anyone will give him what he's looking for out there. He has to swallow his pride and comeback where he is still loved.
"He has to swallow his pride and comeback where he is still loved."
That's all good and well but after the hissy fit he threw and threats to sign with the Dodgers, that original offer may no longer stand.
