Is everyone tiring of Jack Wilson?
From the Post-Gazette game story of Sunday's 13-6 loss:"Tremendous game," Tracy said of Castillo. "Two highlight-reel plays, and another routine ground ball that he fielded ... you know, like you like to see a player field a routine ground ball."
I may be reading waaay between the lines here, but there are some who think there is no routine play that Jack Wilson won't try to turn into a web gem. Jack Wilson looks, to me, like he rushes everything. It's like he's creating the illusion of every play being tough, unless it's hit right at him.
And then there was the thing with Gorzo Friday night, where Gorzo asked him on the field what his problem was after a non-effort by Wilson. They both said later that "they're on the same page." My guess is they had a private meeting that went something like this:
Gorz: So you're Jack Wilson.
Wilson: What's that mean to you?
Gorz: I've heard about you, Wilson.
Wilson: What have you heard?
Gorz: That you're a no-good Yankee liar.
Wilson: ... Prove it.
Gorz: POW! POW! POW! POW!
