08:07 AM ET 01.14 | Brian Wilson has emerged as a legitimate candidate to land in the Mets bullpen after team officials watched him throw on Saturday at UCLA. [Wilson] missed most of last season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April and watched from the sidelines as the Giants won their second World Series in three years. Wilson, who made $8.5 million in 2012, was non-tendered by the Giants after the season. Alderson, who watched the right-hander throw during Saturday's audition, told The Post he is "not sure" if he will extend an offer to Wilson, who reportedly has several other teams interested. Wilson has been selected to three All-Star teams and had his best season for the Giants in 2010.

This is a Gamble but this guy looks like he's worth the Gamble on attitude alone, if he is anywhere near his old self the Mets will more than make their money back a good closer will win more games than a home run hitter in saves alone!!!!!!

I'm not sure if his act is going to carry over well in NYC, but I wouldn't be surprised if his arm came back strong. At least he'd be reasonably close to his roots in NH (he pitched for Londonderry).

His act won't carry out side of San Francisco. He's a publicity ****. He'd have to look real good before I'd want him on my team. But someone will give him an incentive loaded contract.

Boy Moose......you really seem to have it out for 'ol Willie.

You post some nastiness about him whenever there's a thread. Is it safe to assume you're more of a "buttoned down" type that has no patience for characters of Wilson's genre?

Anyway, the man is a legend for us Giants fans and I'd be more than happy to buy him a beer if given the chance. I wish him luck.

The Mets' bullpen is where relievers go to blow saves die ... see: Armando "Blownitez" Benitez, which is Spanish for Braden "Blooper" Looper, which is Venezuelan for Francisco "Order of Protection" Rodr??guez ... the last thing Brian Wilson wants to do is go from the queens in SF to the MFs in Queens.
