Mariners Rumors: Kuroda, Affeldt, Guillen

Let's talk Mariners rumors, aside from their questionable interest in Johan SantanaDavid Andriesen breaks it down.

  • The Ms will acquire at least one solid starter, and hopefully two.  They've got a four-year offer out to Hiroki Kuroda, which is pretty aggressive.  It's possible that if they land him they could look internally for the #5 starter.
  • One interesting rotation option is Jeremy Affeldt, who grew up in Washington about four hours away from Seattle.  Affeldt said he'd consider starting again, which is probably the only way the Ms would have interest in him.  His agent is already talking to the Ms.
  • Bill Bavasi doesn't sound thrilled with Jose Lopez at second base.  Kaz Matsui and Mark Loretta will end up elsewhere, basically leaving Marcus Giles, Tadahito Iguchi, and David Eckstein as the options.  Or, they could trade Richie Sexson for Ray Durham.
  • There's a slight chance Jose Guillen would accept arbitration if offered.  I doubt it though; he'll get two or more years somewhere.  My guess is that it's offered and declined.
