No Progress In Talks With Wilson, Sanchez

According to Rob Biertempfel with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, "There has been no movement by either side in the stalled contract talks between the Pirates and infielders Freddy Sanchez and Jack Wilson."

The Pirates put forth contract extension offers to both players last week, presumably to feel-out their desire to remain in Pittsburgh with the trade deadline loomingWilson and Sanchez quickly rejected the proposals, and now other teams have begun expressing interest in the infielders (including the Twins, Tigers and Red Sox).

Both players have options for 2010, so the Bucs could wait until next season before moving either of them.  But if a decent offer pops up before Friday, you can bet GM Neal Huntington will consider pulling the trigger.
