Jack Wilson, Mariners Discussing Extension

The Mariners are discussing a multiyear extension with shortstop Jack Wilson, according to Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  Kovacevic believes the Ms offered a two-year deal worth more than $8MM.  Soon, the Mariners must decide between Wilson's $8.4MM option for 2010 and a $600K buyout.

Given Wilson's defensive prowess and the scarcity of shortstops, bringing him back at around $4MM a year isn't a bad idea.  The free agent market doesn't offer much beyond Marco Scutaro, and J.J. Hardy was just plucked off the trade market by the Twins.
