Mariners president Chuck Armstrong spoke to a few hundred Portland-area business leaders on Thursday and addressed a few questions on some potential moves that his team might make. Andy Giegerich covered the event for the Portland Business Journal.
- Armstrong met with a representative for free agent Ken Griffey Jr. on Wednesday, but nothing came out of the discussion.
- The M's are also looking at free agent outfielders Bobby Abreu and Garret Anderson. They could become serious suitors as contract numbers continue to fall, especially if the demand for those guys remains low.
