Lost soul Brian Wilson, who signed a $1 million/1-year deal to play for Los Angeles earlier this week, spoke to paparazzi on Wednesday to express his newfound joy in Satan worship. He described playing for the Dodgers as "fucking exciting," adding, "I'm a pretty big America fan ... red, white and Dodger blue, I guess."
When asked about his former team, Wilson said, "I got much love for San Francisco. We had a good time. But there's nothing I can do ... they don't want me back."
In a super piece covering the blue brouhaha, McCovey Chronicles imagines what will go down when Wilson takes the mound at AT&T Park:
When Brian Wilson jogs to the mound at AT&T Park, he will receive a career's worth of boos, alright. A career's worth of boos. And that's how we'll get over the disappointment, the grossness. Booing until our lungs hurt. Traitor. Turncoat. Benedict Arnold. How dare he. HOW DARE HE?
Sure, the Dodgers are a contending team who gave him the best opportunity and chance to play meaningful baseball, and this is a man's livelihood and career, which is sort of personal, especially considering that he knows he's probably not going to be one of those pitchers who lasts until he's 40, like Mariano Rivera, so he has to maximize every opportunity, and that's all he's really thinking about, so it's not really a big deal for him to accept a job with one of the 29 other teams.
The Giants take on the Dodgers September 24th.
