    Isn't he still in Sarasota working out? And wasn't Larue catching some of his pitches?

    I have a hard time believing he'll ever be back at this point.

    There is a VERY good chance that will happen.

    He may get a token start or two. I have heard a few of his "hyped" medical reports on WLW. So far from the truth it's ridiculous. Then again miracles do happen. I plan on talking to Jason LaRue in the next week. I'll ask him how Wilson looked.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I wish alot of the players had the attitude and work ethic that this guy does.

    If anything, I could see him converting to the BP to possibly try and resurrect his career. And it is an area where we may need the help.

    Unfair and insane? For his career -
    ERA: 4.87
    OPS against: .779
    WHIP: 1.45

    Not that great.

    Agreed. He wasn't as good as the hype that surrounded him.

    Man, I remember thinking that the Mets were going to rule baseball for a decade or so.

    In all fairness he said "at his best" not over his career. Yes Paul Wilson has put up very average numbers over the course of his career, but at times he has shown flashes of why he was a former number 1 draft pick. I think the injuries just sidelined him.

    I hope he can come back and like GAC said resurrect his career in the bullpen.

    At times, Jimmy Haynes and Josias Manzanillo have looked good too. As I recall, Eric Milton and Jose Lima had a couple of pretty nice starts last year as well.
