I’m going to lead you, damn it!

Pirates shortstop Jack Wilson went on the record last week during an interview that he finds his teammate Jose “No Way” Castillo to be a fat lazy sack of bones … maybe he didn’t use those exact words.

Jack stands by his words saying:

“Look, I’m harder on myself than anyone. I’m coming off a bad season. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t show up at the yard. And you know what? I think we have five or six leaders on this team, and I feel like I’ve been around long enough at shortstop to be the leader of Jose Castillo.”

Um, Jack?  You can’t just NAME yourself leader.  People have to CHOOSE to follow you.

Otherwise, I’d name myself leader of the hot people.

This is exactly like when Ben decided he was going to LEAD Santonio Holmes, who then flew right into the waiting arms of natural leader Hines Ward.

    I like Jack’s attitude. Perhaps he could name himself manager, too.
