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"
