    Default Jack Wilson moves to 2B

    The Seattle Mariners said Brendan Ryan will be their starting shortstop this season and Jack Wilson will shift to second base.

    Mariners manager Eric Wedge made the announcement Tuesday. He said he thinks that alignment is a more comfortable fit.

    The Mariners got Ryan in a trade with St. Louis last December. He's known more for his glove than his bat.

    The 33-year-old Wilson has been one of the best-fielding shortstops in the majors throughout his career. He wasn't thrilled with the move to second base but said he accepts it.

    Wilson had hamstring problems last season but didn't see that as a reason to change positions.

    Sounds like Jack's days are numbered. I don't think he has the offense to stay at 2B for long. Guess he depends on what else Seattle can come up with.

    POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS SHOULD BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON!

    Any chirping from people that claimed that we needed to keep Jack Wilson at any cost because of what he brings defensively at SS?

    He couldn't even hold that position with the 2nd worst team in MLB. Trading Wilson was the right decision in every possible way

    That has to be the worst hitting middle infield in the league. Once they decide Dustin Ackley is ready it's probably the end of the line for Jack unless Ryan is ridiculously bad. Ackley already has over 50 games in AAA, so they'll probably bring him up in the first few months if he hits.
