Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Brian Wilson was seen screaming at San Francisco Giants CEO Larry Baer after Thursday night's game at AT&T Park. CSN Bay Area reported that the former Giants closer had a disagreement with Baer over the World Series ring he was owed from 2012. Right after the game ended, Wilson walked over to the other side of the ballpark where Baer was seated and began yelling at him over the ring he never received. Baer then delivered the ring to Dodgers' personnel outside the visiting team's clubhouse to give to Wilson. Staci Slaughter, the Giants' senior vice president of communications and senior advisor to the CEO, said Wilson's ring was available for him in April when the Giants held a pregame ceremony, but he declined the invitation. Slaughter said Baer, assistant general manager Bobby Evans and manager Bruce Bochy have made attempts to get Wilson his ring. "It's disappointing. It's unfortunate. It's bizarre, really," Slaughter said. "This organization really has tried to do the right thing and I don't know where this is coming from. It wasn't for a lack of effort on our part. Larry, Bobby, Bochy -- everybody has made an effort to reach out to him." After having a second Tommy John surgery last year, the Giants elected not to re-sign him after monitoring his recovery. He ultimately signed with the Dodgers in late July. Wilson said after the game that the incident with Baer was "Just a conversation between me and him." He said it had nothing to do with taunting from Giants fans while he was warming up but would not further elaborate.
