The front office's thinking, as outlined by internal sources yesterday, is that Wilson is valuable to the Pirates not only because of his fine performance in the past year-plus but also because his departure would leave a gaping hole, as was painfully evident when he missed two months to injury this season.



Wilson yesterday reiterated his wish to stay in Pittsburgh, where he and his family have become as connected to the community as he has been with his only major league employer. Last month, he played his 1,000th game as a Pirates shortstop.

"This is where I want to be," Wilson said.

Yeah, but if you acquire a shortstop prospect in Class AAA or so then you don't have a gaping hole.

The only team that has been mentioned that's interested in Jack is the Dodgers and their prospect SS is something like 24...he's getting to be a little on the down side of prospect...

His numbers remind of Chris Duffy, little to no power, and having to use his speed to get on base

Rumor mill today has the Braves interested in Nady or Bay, and willing to give Lillebridge back as part of any deal.
