Mariners Still Trying To Ink Josh Fields

According to John Hickey of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the Mariners have reopened talks with Scott Boras, the agent for 2008 first-round draft pick Josh Fields.

Boras demanded a $2MM signing bonus last June when the M's took the Georgia right-hander 20th overall.  The organization balked at the figure and the two sides dropped communication for several months. 

"We've had a few discussions now,'' Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik said Tuesday. ''We're keeping the status quo... I like Scott Boras. I realize he's a professional, and my discussions with him have always been pleasant going back 15 years now.''

The Mariners are obviously hoping to sign Fields before spring training gets underway on February 13.
