Mets Showing Strong Interest In Brian Wilson

2:45pm: Alderson is "not sure" if the Mets will extend Wilson an offer, reports the New York Post's Mike Puma.

10:03 am: The Mets are showing strong interest in former Giants closer Brian Wilson, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today (on Twitter).  Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson watched Wilson yesterday in a private workout.

Before the New Year we learned that Wilson narrowed down his list of suitors in half from about nine or ten to approximately five.  The Giants are open to a reunion but are only willing to give Wilson a deal with a low base salary and performance-based incentives.  The 30-year-old made only two appearances in 2012 before suffering a season-ending elbow injury.
