Following his team's 3-2 loss to the Giants on Thursday night, Dodgers right-hander Brian Wilson confronted Giants team president Larry Baer about his 2012 World Series ring. Apparently he hadn't received it yet. Here's a photo of the encounter, which took place immediately after the game ended:

Baer is the guy in the suit leaning over the railing, Wilson is the ... uh ... bearded guy in uniform. You probably knew that.

The Giants tried to meet with Wilson at several times this season to give him his ring -- they even invited him to the ceremony in April -- but he didn't respond. After last night's incident, the team simply sent the ring down to the Dodgers clubhouse.

“I don't know why he decided to make a show of it and air his grievance tonight,” said team spokeswoman Staci Slaughter to Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Wilson, 31, appeared in two games for the Giants last season before tearing an elbow ligament and needing the second Tommy John surgery of his career. He signed with the rival Dodgers earlier this summer and has a 0.73 ERA in 12 1/3 innings.
