Larry Stone talked to Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik, who listed the team’s needs:
"I’d love to have an outfield bat, and I’d love to have another infielder. And everyone is looking for pitching."
Stone also learned that the Ms have an offer out to one free agent and Zduriencik is very optimistic he will be signed.
Stone says Adam Dunn "has a strong preference to remain in the NL," and there’s no indication the Mariners are interested in Manny Ramirez. Ken Griffey Jr. seems to be a backburner issue. Stone says we should "tuck away" Gabe Kapler as a possibility.
