09:26 AM ET 02.09 | Although neither the Giants nor Brian Wilson have closed the door on a return for the three-time All-Star closer, the two sides remain in hot disagreement -- and money isn't the current issue. Wilson's agent responded immediately and forcefully to a comment that Brian Sabean made during a media session on the eve of FanFest Friday, in which the Giants' longtime GM said, "Their camp holds hope he can get a contract with more guaranteed money, and we're looking for more of an incentive-type deal." Dan Lozano of MVP Sports Group called Sabean's statement inaccurate because, under direct order from Wilson, there have been no discussions about contract terms with the Giants or any other club. "(Wilson) has instructed us not to talk terms or money until he's 100 percent," Lozano said. "We haven't talked terms or money with the Giants or any other team. So I'm a little baffled by Brian Sabean's comment that we're out there looking for more money."

Agent Lozano is upset because he has n leverage. Of course it is about money, it always is. His product is suspect and nobody is going to ante up until he can prove his product is good to go. Catch 22.

"We haven't talked terms or money with the Giants or any other team." Wow. This agent isn't helping himself or his client. Way to drive the price down on your boy!

This guy is a bozo.

At this point, there's no evidence Wilson can even play. His agent should just shut it.

If Wilson is ever ready to pitch again in the bigs it will be with a contract of minimum salary, a whole lot of incentives, and probably for one year.

"(Wilson) has instructed us not to talk terms or money until he's 100 percent,"

He'll never be 100%.

bettere yet, he should get a contract for the minimum salary and no incentives promises at all!!!

wiseup Wilson needs to ditch his agent. he is hindering Wilson's ability to work out a contract. Wilson might have to accept a monor league contract to show if he can still pitch at major league leve land prove you are 100%

The Team feels compelled to give an answer, a no comment would have sufficed!!

Nasty.... I grow the same kind of hair in my shorts, but I don't dye it....

Closers are overrated any way.

No doubt, even the so called "great" Rivera. Like the Skankees even missed him last year. Plug in anyone and they can get 40 saves.

Last time I looked the Giants won it all without Wilson; so please tell me where is his leverage? And what has Wilson done since 2010?
