M’s Should Focus On Pitching, Defense

We’re boring down on February, the free agent market for hitters has nearly dried up entirely and the Mariners continue to be tied to Nelson Cruz. Why? Maybe because the reporters are just connecting dots; the Mariners need offense and Cruz and Morales are two of the very best options available that could make some kind of difference. Maybe the Mariners have legitimate interest in Cruz. Why? I haven’t the foggiest.

Churchill: Buzz On Tanaka, Mariners On Fire

Most pundits are now projecting Tanaka signs with either Seattle or Arizona, but if any of the rumors, vis-a-vis the Mariners’ heavy courting of the split-finger master and the idea that perhaps Tanaka already knows where he wants to play, things could end well for the Emerald City.

The Seattle Mariners Are Not Out Of Money

After splurging for the No. 1 free agent in Major League Baseball at the price of $240 million, there are indications that the Seattle Mariners are just about out of money.

Mariners Should Stay Committed, Go For Tanaka

Acquiring Tanaka could cost $80-100 million in total, and the club still has other needs on top of starting pitching, but signing Japan’s best available arm would be another huge step away from the bowels of mediocrity and toward the light of winning baseball, even in the competitive American League West.
