Jack Wilson Gets Paid, Looks Forward to Competing for World Championship


Jack Wilson is a rich man.  The Mariners signed him this afternoon, of course, financial terms weren’t disclosed, but reportedly the deal is two years for $10 million.

“I am extremely excited for the opportunity the Mariners have given me to continue my career in Seattle,” said Wilson. “I am looking forward to competing for a world championship in 2010.” ( I am not sure if Jack knows the World Baseball Classic was this year )

Wilson batted .224 with one home run and eight RBI in 31 games for Seattle after being traded from the Pirates.  A bruised right heel ended his season on September 16. He also missed time in August with a sore left hamstring.

It really sucks we couldn’t get the shortstop back in Pittsburgh.

He played 87 games and 106 games the past two years.  The Pirate pitchers really wanted Jack back in Pittsburgh, but Jack took the big money Seattle offered.  Can’t blame him Seattle is building a winner.

Jack Wilson.  We miss you. Yeh, right hit the music. I am going to celebrate. Enjoy your weekend.
