After the Giants 32 win at AT&T park last night. Are Giants inside are Andrew -- -- was the first to report that Wilson was complaining about not receiving his 2012 World Series ring. It happened immediately after the final pitch of Thursday night's game Brian Wilson going over across the field began shouting at Giants CEO Larry Baer. The Giants say Wilson declined an invitation until last April's ring ceremony the team also says it tried to meet with -- Wilson several other times. But they're calls were not returned following the confrontation there delivered the range and Dodgers personnel. Here's what Baird told candy are succeeding this morning at the -- Mac show. He came over and says definitely when I get my -- basically didn't do it's it's not. It was too much of it all back inside the heat of the moment I think you've been heckled. By the fans that the weather was warming up. So I gather it's it's as much as a big deals that seem to this not that big a deal. That -- make it a big deal anyway final series of the season for the Giants there at home and are Giants insiders Andrew bag really Andrew you're able to talk to Brian Wilson. What's -- we easy side of the story what was his explanation. When you really didn't opera when he just said it was a private conversation between me and Larry -- obviously wasn't too private they're about 40000 people who witnessed it. But you know as you know this is a big day -- -- Denver's coaching going over the offseason what went wrong with this team what we can look forward to in terms of offseason moves. A tale of one thing we can pretty much torpedo any talk of Brian Wilson resigning is a giant after this so maybe he's making my double easier other you have an -- -- -- that conversation just a minute but you told us on Yahoo! Sports talk live earlier this week. That would Melky Cabrera in the Blue Jays were around the Giants there were more hugs going down with the Melky. Then when Brian Wilson and the Dodgers swirl around is this a classic hate hate relationship now -- Brian Wilson and the Giants organization. I think the Giants have really tried to take the high road or their return and as Larry -- mentioned that this morning. How Wilson was very upset was very hurt that -- the Giants did not tender him a contract or arbitration this past offseason would have guaranteed him close to seven million. When they knew he wasn't gonna be ready to pitch at the start of the year. He didn't make eight million. Last year. When he only appeared in two games so he -- ledger was kind of even basically. In terms of the Giants a way of thinking the Wilson didn't feel that way and he's continued to hold a grudge even though. He says he hasn't it's pretty clear that he does have some hard feelings. As far as the Giants go they're just kind of define us a little bit bizarre they'd be available since the ring ceremony to have his ring. They've given -- out to the Dodgers they wanna chipper is presented to him. You know privately or just on the field as they did in the Schuerholz and in not making a big deal lot of that are not. You know announcing into the crowd. As as Larry Baer said that be a little unusual to do since he is a dodger now. But they wanted to find a way to give him his ring respectfully in and -- it didn't work out. So they've now given the ring to the Dodgers in in Wilson has it. To do with it as he chooses to -- -- -- reference -- saving -- his -- -- -- hold a press conference to go over the 2013 season. How did they address the cases of Hunter Pence and Tim Lincecum. Well I made it very clear. Released months ago that made it very clear when they didn't trade either of those guys that they wanna we signed them. They're active with -- right now still -- -- close to a deal but it just in time he's not a free agent until five days after the World Series. And as soon as they get far along with -- they wanna begin with Lincecum. And also Javier Lopez. But I you know two things that price Zabian said that really work -- starters. One he said he would do that Barry Zito contract all over again as crazy as it might sound he said do you people. He really respect does he just class and professionalism -- he helped the win a World Series is very gratifying. And the other thing Sagan said it was very interesting was he was as surprised as anyone in the world to exit -- That the Giants won the World Series last year and it didn't go into this year blindly but they did think well let's see if we can squeeze one more -- this group. They weren't able to do that -- he says the window is now close on that group and its time to open up a new window. Which means you're going to be busy in the off season trying to figure out who's coming through that window as we get ready for 2014 and -- back nearly three more games left in the season.
