Man am I glad the Tigers passed on him.

Fark Mike Love.

Mike Love claimed the whole disabled list idea was his.

Good luck getting Mike Love to switch from that Beach Boys hat he inexplicably wears...

Brian Wilson used to be a funny, free-spirited closer, like a Zach Galifianakis of baseball.  Then he turned into just another egotistical scumbag primadonna closer, like a Quentin Tarantino of baseball.  So I don't have much sympathy.

Safe to say he'll be lying in bed while he recuperates.

Wouldn't it be nice......if the Dodgers went 0-162 every year?

"...allowing three runs on two hits and a walk. He didn't look right in that appearance,"

Once the umpires quit giving him a large strike zone and batters learned to wait for him to actually throw a strike, the outing described above is pretty much what Giants fans came to expect from him.

SF front office isn't known for making savvy decisions, but dumping this primadonna was the smartest move they've made in a long time.

This is why the Giants let him go.

Is it just me, or are a lot of big-name players getting injured early this year?

This Looks Fun...

Damn you!

Psh.  Should've called up John Stamos.

It would be even better if also ran, second tier regional teams didn't have to change their name to the Los Angeles Angels to make themselves feel better.

They now need to find another closer lying around, just like Brian Wilson did.

Even when he was effective and playing for the Giants Wilson was "torture" to watch pitch. Now with age and physical problems he's probably done. It was nice of the Dodgers to give him ten million dollars as a parting gift. That's pretty much what the Giants do for washed up players too.

It was a business decision by Moreno that has paid off in advertising dollars. Plus, that's pretty laughable coming from a fan of the team that left one city and moved to a football stadium in another one, all the while keeping a name, the (trolley) Dodgers, that had nothing to do with their new location. See: the Lakers, Utah Jazz, New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets etc.

The Dodgers haven't won a World Series since the first Bush presidency, so whatever. Jeebus, you're like the San Francisco Giants fan that got in my grill about the Angels World Series and basically had nothing to say to "The Giants hadn't won jack since they were at the Polo Grounds until their two recent titles, get stuffed".

Also, Angels fans don't get beaten so badly by gang bangers that they end up in medically induced comas. That would be the same gang bangers that infest the aged, overpriced shiathole called Dodger Stadium. This Giants fan wasn't so fortunate:

Even though they've sold a couple hundred million records, Mike Love still gets his hats from the merch table. He needs to take a lesson from Micky Dolenz.

Not sure if shopped, but here is the only photo I know of that shows Mike Love's bald head in all its glory.

This. Fark the Angels. They don't even reside in Los Aneles County yet they insist on using the name. Fark you Angels. You, like the Clippers will always be second to the Dodgers & Lakers.

Even Brian Wilson doesn't want to acknowledge the existence of Mike Love.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzz. I haven't read any reports of the "San Francisco" 49ers being renamed the Santa Clara 49ers, so, again, whatever.

The "New York" Giants and "New York" Jets = play in another state.
