    Default Wilson, Seattle talking extension

    "Jack Wilson, the Pirates' shortstop most of this decade, is discussing a multiyear extension with Seattle that would keep him from becoming a free agent.

    The Mariners are believed to have offered a two-year contract worth more than the two-year offer the Pirates made Wilson -- $8 million -- shortly before trading him July 29. Wilson has an $8.4 million club option for 2010, with a $600,000 buyout, one that Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik said at the time of the trade he would consider exercising.

    Wilson recently was named the top defensive shortstop in Major League Baseball this past season by the Fielding Bible, a statistics-based publication headed by Bill James. He batted .255 with five home runs and 39 RBIs, missing much of his two months with the Mariners to injury...."

    Good $$$ offer for Jack. If he can get that kind of cash from Seattle, it will probably will save the Pirates and their fans some heartaches about not re-signing Jack.

    It would be tough to bring back an aging, injury prone Jack even if he took a discount at this point. This kind of offer from Seattle will put that talk to rest.

    Jack Wilson coming back to the Pirates is/was always a pipe dream!
