[Andy] MacPhail doesn't comment specifically on players but made it clear the Orioles will focus on adding starting pitching and a shortstop. The San Diego Padres' Khalil Greene, the Milwaukee Brewers' J.J. Hardy and the Pittsburgh Pirates' Jack Wilson are among the shortstops the Orioles are considering pursuing in trades.
I don't think the Pirates would trade Wilson to the Orioles simply because the Pirates would want prospects, and the Orioles have been acquiring prospects recently, not trading them away. That might change if they acquire Mark Teixeira, but I'll believe that when I see it.
