New York, NY.--
Life without Brian Wilson is bound to have its moments -- memorable and forgettable, painful and painless, good, bad, indifferent and, on an April Friday night in the City of Insomniacs, all of the above. So it was on this baseball evening in the Big Citi that another day without the peculiar bearded one that the Giants produced a not particularly becoming victory that exhausted the normal supply of baseball adjectives.

At 10:52 p.m. ET, when Gregor Blanco put the squeeze on the game's final out in center field, the Giants put a 4-3, 10-inning victory over the Mets out of its misery. It could have been easier, neater and shorter. It might have been a blueprint type of victory, the sort Giants general manager Brian Sabean sees on a January evening when he's working on the personnel puzzle. Had Wilson been available to blunt the Mets' resistance in the ninth inning, Sabean might have found this enjoyable, without qualification.
