Wilson stands by word

By now you've all heard about Jack Wilson challenging second baseman Jose Castillo to step up his game this season. Dejan wrote an article today stating that Wilson stands by what he said and that it was solely intended as a challenge to the young Castillo to have him perform at the best of his abilities.

Personally, I don't mind Wilson doing this. I believe he knows how good Castillo can be. He's seen it, we've all seen it, but for some reason Castillo tends to just slip down past mediocrity at some point each year. If this is what it takes to light a fire in him while he's still a Pirate, then so be it. If it causes turmoil, then let him go. The Pirates were already shopping him once, I'm sure they'd look into it some more.
