09:15 AM ET 03.20 | The Giants have been on cruise control throughout spring training, but they hit a speed bump Saturday, one that might turn into a significant problem. An MRI exam revealed that All-Star closer Brian Wilson has a strained left oblique, suffered during a scoreless inning of relief Thursday. Wilson will rest until Monday, when he will be re-evaluated. Wilson said his teammates "know I'll be ready" for opening day, but with the season opener less than two weeks away, manager Bruce Bochy conceded that "this is a setback."

It's a freak beard injury, usually seen only on hockey players during the playoffs.

He should have eaten more pork chops.

Millwood did that and he's on the unemployment line. Joba did that and he pulled a muscle.

Everytime I see that "beard" I think of the made-for-TV movie Gettysburg.
