The Mariners and White Sox have gone nearly a decade without making a trade. After the 2004 deal that sent Freddy Garcia to Chicago, maybe Seattle has learned its lesson.
Thomas Holmes of the Bleacher Report makes predictions on who’ll be suiting up for the Mariners next week.
Aside from now going by “Michael,” Mike Morse’s annual income went from the $407,000 he was making when he was traded from the Mariners to the Washington Nationals in June 2009 to the $6.75 million in base salary he’ll make in 2013.
Bleacher Report’s Matt Boczar suggests Bourn would be the perfect man to have ahead of Morales and Morse in the lineup.
