Wilson hits the disabled list

Giants closer Brian Wilson has landed on the disabled list, along with his beard, due to inflammation in his right elbow (Extra Baggs). He reportedly felt something in his elbow last Monday night during his blown save against the Braves and didn't feel comfortable Tuesday, which prompted a visit to Dr. James Andrews (MLB.com) -- the famed surgeon who performs Tommy John surgeries, among other procedures. He did Wilson's Tommy John surgery a few years ago. Andrews found nothing more than inflammation, so Wilson isn't going under the knife, for now. Still, it's bad enough to land him on the disabled list. He's eligible to come off August 31.

Wilson, 29, has closed 35 of 40 save chances this season with a 3.19 ERA and 1.49 WHIP.

Needless to say Buster Posey and Freddy Sanchez were lost for the season a long time ago...

I have followed the Giants for 27 years and according to my calculations the Giants currently listed on the DL should all be playing and "healthy" on or about the 1st week of September.
With 21 of thier next 22 in the state of California i have no doubt the uninformed,misguided,delusional MLB fans that hate(this thread a microcosm of those very personality types) for no other reason than to hate,will be sorely disappointed at the Giants winning the NL West when the ENTIRE 2011 MLB Season is complete.

He can only blame himself growing a fierce beard that large was only going to increase his airflow problems making him work harder in conjunction with the added weight.  It was only a matter of time before he strained or broke something!!!

(If your IQ is under 70 or you reside in the Simcoe, Ontario region I will tell you that this is a joke)

Let me preface this first by saying I am not a Giants fan or hater. It always amazes me the absolute idiots on here. Someone gets a bunch of attention and all of a sudden there are haters everywhere. Last I checked the Giants won the World Series last year. Last I checked Brian Wilson was a huge part of it. He's a very good closer who has an injury. That simple. I wish cbs would monitor these posts and delete the idiots. I hope Wilson rebounds and does well, and if for some reason he doesn't he still has one more WS title than all of us here combined. So many jealous idiots.

<span style="color: #000000;">I don't mind if a player wants to grow a long thick beard, but dying it black is some goth/emo shit. No place for that in baseball...dude's a cake.

As a giants fan im actually glad hes on the DL. He gets alot of saves but gives the fans alot of grey hairs doing so, plus we cant get a lead so we dont really need a closer .

you're an absolute idiot. are you seriously that bored that this is your comment about the guy on the DL?? first off youre either a twins fan or red sox fan either way your opinion is meaningless. 1 cause the twins are all about regualar season wins and getting bent over by the yankees. 2 if you're a red sox fan then you're a front runner and that is absolutly pathetic. I know when the "sawks" won there rings you were ready to blow damon when he looked like a caveman. Wilson is a better closer then those scrubs nathan and papelbon put together.

 you're a pirates fan...what opinion of baseball could matter from you...your pirates might as well be a triple A team. I understand you're still jaded cause the giants stole bonds from you which in return you have recieved a losing season almost 20 straight seasons. just pick another team no one will bag on you for jumping ships. EVERYONE knows how horrible the pirates have been and will always be.
