Via Baseball Musings, I learned that Henry Schulman found out about Brian Wilson's Twittering his late night fun …. and that Brian was out partying the night before a day game, the same game in which he blew a 4-1 lead:
…. Let me start this post by saying I am not Brian Wilson's father. He is 27 years old and can spend his free time however he chooses. His personal life is just that, and I don't make a habit of reporting on players' extracurricular activities.
Now, if the players report it themselves . . .
Somebody alerted me to Wilson's Twitter page. Unless someb
ody hijacked the page, we have to conclude the Giants' closer was out very late Saturday night clubbing in Scottsdale. There are a couple of posts suggesting he was getting into it with what he called “overaggressive males.” His last post of the night is stamped “about 22 hours ago,” in other words, 1 a.m. Sunday.
Which would not have (been) worth mentioning except that the Giants played a day game today. In that game, Wilson could not throw fastballs where he wanted and lost a 4-1 lead in the ninth for his first blown save of the season. The Giants ended up losing in the 12th, 5-4.
A word of caution, Brian. Fans notice this stuff.
