I think it all started on April 28, when San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson entered the ninth inning with one out and promptly blew a save for Tim Lincecum, who had been pitching a masterpiece against the Philadelphia Phillies. Legions of Giants fans everywhere began calling for Wilson's head on a platter (as well as Bruce Bochy's).
For the next two months, Wilson was the subject of many "torture" and "B-Queasy" tweets.
There has been a lot of hate cast on Wilson since he has become the team's full-time stopper. But let's get one thing clear right now. As I wrote back in March, Brian Wilson is the best closer in baseball. Period. And I've got 10 good reasons to support my claim.
