Sportsbeat and Jack basically apologizes for tone of his statement. I can accept that. Good job Jack.

Post-Gazette has the story up there too...

Quote:
"I really didn't sleep last night, I think some of my comments were pretty harsh," Wilson said. "When you are here, and in the moment and you are talking to guys and everyone is bummed out, you tend to lose your head a little and vent. A lot of the things I said, I thought about last night talking to my wife and they were pretty inaccurate, I would say.

"I definitely don't want to be that guy who is butting heads with the organization or trying to cause any type of negativity, so, I apologize for that."

Wilson also made a point to get across that his comments today were done not by the urging of anyone within the organization, but only after he spoke to his wife and after he had realized what he said yesterday could (and probably had been) construed as a negative by many.

"I haven't talked to anybody, I haven't talked to Neal [Huntington] or anybody like that," Wilson said. "I just felt like that's not the person, that's not the player I want to be for the Pittsburgh Pirates. I am definitely passionate about winning, about being a Pirate and I think sometimes it comes out in a negative way. For that, I definitely apologize."

I agree. I'm glad this happened. There is really nothing not to like about Jack, he maximizes his talent and plays hard. He has been through so many terrible seasons and rebuilds that the frustration is understandable IMO. I'm glad he apologized though because he was wrong.
