    Coletti has to be banking on guys like Getz & Nix being available all the way into start of spring training I’m thinking.

  2. Tommets 2 years ago

    Any chance of the Mets dealing Ike to the Padres for Huston Street?

    • MikeTroutForMayor 2 years ago

      Not with Yonder Alonso already penciled in at 1st for 2014.

    • Donald Munson 2 years ago

      Probably unlikely. The Padres seem to be set on bolstering their bullpen not trade away the depth that’s no longer there.

    • rct 2 years ago

      I’d say zero. There’s no way they trade him for one (or two, if you count the team option) years of a reliever. They want prospects.

    Much rather wait to see if Tanaka will be posted before going after Santana. The contact he’s demanding is insane.

  4. Marinersforever71 2 years ago

    If Ichiro, Soriano, or Gardner is available to be traded back to the Mariners similar to Cliff Lee possibly rejoining also from the Phillies w/ Papelbon packaged in some trade rumor, the Yanks can package Ichiro back to Seattle for Tom Wilhelmsen and a mid or low level prospect as the new closer or set up man between Farquhar & either Papelbon or Rodney via free agency will make sense for Jack Z. to pull off including Justin Smoak packaged in a three team trade between the Mariners/Phillies. Which outfielder between Marte or Tabata from the Pirates or Brown of the Phillies should the Mariners send to the Phillies for Cliff Lee or Papelbon? Smoak could then be sent to the Pirates from the Phillies for a mid minor league prospect or two.

      That sounds terrible.

    • Jon Moore 2 years ago

      He will retire a Mariner but hes done. Why would we want Ichiro back.

      • Marinersforever71 2 years ago

        Yankees have tons of outfielders after signing Beltran, Gardner can help the Mariners through a trad if it will take either Beaven or Maurer on top of Stephen Romero (replacing A-Rod) being the trade piece to the Bronx?

        • MSUcorner 2 years ago

          Gardner is the only on that would be a fit in Seattle.

          • Marinersforever71 2 years ago

            Will the Reds be interested in Nick Franklin in the multi team trade from the Mariners via the Yankees sending Chapman or Bailey (but not Brandon Phillips) to the Bronx and who else would go to the Bronx from Seattle?

          • MSUcorner 2 years ago

            I don’t know if Homer can be for for that little. And Bronson is a FA.

          • Marinersforever71 2 years ago

            Who would be available going to the Reds in the multi trade?

    • Ken Leder 2 years ago

      Please, just stop talking…

    • John Kreese 2 years ago

      I like your enthusiasm but I think a less complicated way of making it work would be to focus on a Tabata for Smoak type of deal. PIT gets their first basemen they need & the M’s get an OF upgrade.

      • Marinersforever71 2 years ago

        Separate trade. Between Stefan Romero or Patrick Kivelhan, who is the Phillies more interested in between those two?

  5. Reuven Bolnick 2 years ago

    What is with the Mariners grabbing injury prone players? Not to mention their love of one year deals?

    • MSUcorner 2 years ago

      With our management, we have to settle for small signings. We could never make a big FA splash.

      • Reuven Bolnick 2 years ago

        That’s right, Cano didn’t sign with Seattle…

    • Ken Leder 2 years ago

      You don’t need to make all long term signings in one off season. LOL Plus the Mariners aren’t done yet as far as we know. And there is nothing wrong with one year deals. You have to be efficient with most of your money, and those one year deals gives Mariners low risk/high reward potential with depth and a potential for it to be worth much more then what they are paying. These are the type of deals good teams make to pad there 25 man roster. Nothing wrong with the Gutierrez/Hart deals.

  6. Zak A 2 years ago

    Draft pick compensation seems to only hurt the middling teams 11-20 who can’t afford to lose a draft pick but need those FAs just like the protected 1-10s do.

  7. ratboy 2 years ago

    Dbacks “in” on two of Tanaka, Santana and Garza. Tanaka not getting posted. I don’t particularly like those odds.

  8. MSUcorner 2 years ago

    I like that trade…

  9. Marinersforever71 2 years ago

    Three team trade with the Pirates/Phillies/Mariners if it can work out to land Papelbon and/or Lee to Seattle.

  10. Marinersforever71 2 years ago

    Mariners get Cliff Lee and/or Papelbon.
    Phillies get Nick Franklin, either Marte or Tabata, and a pitching prospect (both from the Pirates).
    Pirates get Smoak, John Hicks or Jesus Sacre (as in insurance to couple catchers being injured during the season), and either Carson Smith/Tyler Pike/or Anthony Fernandez.

  11. Marinersforever71 2 years ago

    I agree now as pitchers Victor Sanchez or Edwin Diaz, Dominic Leone, and Smoak to the Pirates via the Mariners & Phillies in multi team trade.

  12. bdiddy7 2 years ago

    Santana shouldn’t sell himself short like that. Only 100MM?
    In all seriousness, this is ridiculous. He’s a career league average pitcher(100 ERA+). This dude is liable to put up a 5 ERA next year without any imagination needed.
    If I was negotiating with his agent, I couldn’t help but laugh when he’d mention 100 million.

  13. Marinersforever71 2 years ago

    Totally agree as a C level pitching prospect instead of Martinez would make more sense if the Phillies is interested in Leone or Anthony Fernandez.
