Who would have thought that troubled closer Brian Wilson, who once shilled for Mayor Ed Lee, would one day stand in AT&T Park, dressed in a Dodgers garb, and throw a temper tantrum about his World Series ring. But that's what happened at last night's game.
After the Giants' 3-2 victory against the Dodgers Thursday night, WIlson walked over to Giants CEO Larry Baer to shout and point wildly. It seems, at least according to the Giants, he was upset over his World Series ring, which he had yet to receive.
Schulman has more:
Wilson's actions stunned Baer and Giants officials, who said they tried repeatedly throughout the season to meet with Wilson so the ring could be presented, and that he never responded, even when the Giants invited him to the ring ceremony during the first weekend of the home season.
"I don't know why he decided to make a show of it and air his grievance tonight," team spokeswoman Staci Slaughter said.
