The Giants would still like to bring Brian Wilson back but they will wait until his market value is set first.
Wilson still wants to play under the big lights of a major market. But the Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels both haven't shown interest. The Giants want him back and manager Bruce Bochy is leading the recruiting trail:
"Sometimes these things don't go as smooth as you would like. You still don't forget the contributions he made to the Giants in 2010. I'd love to have a chance to talk to him here real soon. I wish him nothing but the best. Unfortunately, these things happen and they're part of the business."
After four straight seasons of at least 36 saves, Wilson only pitched in two games all last season due to injury, making the Giants not want to go into arbitration with a closer that could make $6.8 million. They had to risk Wilson leaving by allowing him to become a free agent. Wilson's feelings were a bit hurt and Bochy understands that.
