San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson vows to be ready for next year - ESPN

How many useless ligaments does he have?

A ligament from his leg was used in his elbow, so Wilson has to be careful with any exercise at this stage. He spoke for the first time since his procedure in a wide-ranging interview Wednesday at his locker before San Francisco opened a quick two-game series against the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals.

“I’ve had it done before; I know what to expect,” Wilson said, noting he is staying upbeat. “I don’t really have room for negativity in my life. Early on you could think of all the negative things that hinder you, but if you keep focusing on negativity, then that’s exactly what you’ll produce. So I try to think more positively, and surround myself with teammates like I have that are very positive and are going to help me heal well. And I think I’ve got an entire city behind my back.”
