No Interest in Pirates Shortstop Jack Wilson

Interest in Pirates shortstop Jack Wilson -- the subject of trade talk throughout the year -- waned to the point that all negotiations and inquiries had virtually ceased over the past week even as the July 31 deadline approached, according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

It would seem that Wilson -- hitting .274 with 12 doubles in 241 at-bats after missing much of the season with injury -- likely will remain a Buc for a while yet.
