He'd probably have been their #6 starter. You can make an argument that Wilson was better than Matt Morris. He had a better ERA, even in relative terms. Yet Morris chewed up 18.1 more innings, had just as many quality starts and an identical OPS against (Morris with the lower OB, Wilson the lower SLG). All things considered, I'd take the better innings eater.
Plus the Cards have Dan Haren and Al Reyes poised to leapfrog Wilson.
