Mariners Are Frontrunners For Figgins

7:50pm: The M's are the "clear frontrunners" to sign Figgins, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.  Morosi writes that it is likely that the switch-hitting third baseman will receive a four-year deal in excess of $30MM.

6:06pm: The Mariners are the latest team to join the chase for free agent Chone Figgins, reports Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated (via Twitter).  Heyman also notes that the Angels are "still trying."

Figgins, in all probability, would fill the club's void at third base where he turned in a UZR/150 of 18.8 in 2009.  Do you think the Mariners should pursue Figgins or find a different, and perhaps cheaper, solution at third?
