From Extra Baggs, a blog by Giants beat writer (San Jose Mercury News) Andrew Baggarly:
Giants closer Wilson upset after Dodgers’ Blake mocks him
A friend sent Wilson a photo of Dodgers third baseman Casey Blake mocking the crossed-arms gesture that the Giants' All-Star closer makes when he finishes off a victory. The gesture is symbolic of Wilson's faith and it's also a signal to his late father. The background on Wilson's gesture can be found here. [...]
When asked what was upsetting him, Wilson grudgingly showed the photo on his phone to myself and Henry Schulman of the SF Chronicle. (It showed Blake seated in the dugout with his arms crossed.) He didn't want to say anything, though. We asked if Blake's gesture was an affront to his faith. "Yeah, and my dad," Wilson said.
I asked if he'd remember the next time he faced Blake. Wilson shrugged and clamped his mouth shut. From the next locker over, Jeremy Affeldt said, "Blake knows what he did."
"Let's get ready to rumble...the next time these two teams meet...which isn't until—wait, you're kidding me. August? August 10? Geez, wake me up in three months."
