Yup, this guy is still on the list. I don’t actually care that he hasn’t thrown a pitch in the Major Leagues since 2014. Wilson’s nickname is The Beard, and he has a 0.00 ERA in 18.0 career postseason innings with 25 strikeouts. Wilson recorded six saves for the San Francisco Giants in their 2010 run to the World Series.

What to say about the beard? Wilson’s beard looks like a nest of itchy wires screaming for a moisture rich conditioner (hence the Head and Shoulders commercials). While I’m not sure that he is classically handsome like an old movie star, his eyes tell me that he is probably a generous lover with a lot of heart.
