NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider breaks down the M’s off season moves so far and what likely lies ahead for their roster. Seriously, if you won’t trade Walker or Paxton for Kemp or Upton why would you give either of them up for Zobrist? It makes no sense to make this deal if you are the Mariners unless the price is significantly less than giving up Walker or Paxton.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider Brian Scott gives us the latest on the M’s search for a right fielder. I really think that filling this role from within is exactly where this right field situation is headed for the Mariners. The good news is that they do have options, options that I prefer to signing a guy who is finished, or over paying for a guy who is not, via trade.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider Brian Scott takes a look at the M’s next potential acquisition, Melky Cabrera. Next up for big Jack appears to be Melky Cabrera. While nothing official has been reported or announced, Cabrera would be a great fit in the M’s new-look batting order while playing right field. Will the M’s stop there?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Insider Brian Scott takes a look at who the Seattle Mariners top free agent targets should be for the 2015 season. Would the M’s dare to chase down another big money free agent? One of the biggest names out there has to be the Tiger’s Victor Martinez. Martinez led the majors with a .974 OPS this year while batting .335 and crushing 32 dingers. He’d be a huge upgrade hitting behind Cano in the M’s lineup.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the connections between Jesus Montero and Biogenesis, an anti-aging company being investigated by the MLB for supposedly providing high-profile athletes with banned substances. Though nothing has been proven at this time, Montero’s connection to the agency is troubling and could have big ramifications for the Mariners in 2013.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Ben Tole weighs in on who would be a decent fit from the 2013 free-agent class. After a 75-win season, we saw some obvious improvement with this young Seattle Mariners team. But there is still plenty of work to be done with this roster before the Mariners are going to make a run at the post season. Josh Hamilton, Nick Swisher, BJ Upton, and Melky Cabrera are all possibilities.
