As a Seattlelite I'm kind of digging all the Mariners talk the last couple of days.

 

The M's have to go nuts now, don't they?

 

Here's what they could (if they went bonkers) do:

 

1: Trade some combination of Nick Franklin/Edwin Diaz/Dustin Ackley/Steven Pryor to Cubs for Samardzija +

2: Sign Sin-Shoo Choo for 5/85

3: Sign Mike Napoli for 3/45

4: Sign Beltran for 3/45

 

Puts their payroll around $150MM

 

Line-up:

 

Choo - RF

Miller - SS

Cano - 2B

Napoli - 1B/DH

Beltran - LF

Smoak - 1B/DH

Seager - 3B

Zunino - C

Saunders - CF

 

Starters:

Felix

Iwakuma

Samardzija

Paxton

Walker

Yeah they have to commit at least another 100 million to make the Cano signing remotely a good idea. They might even commit 400M in one year.

Nope add up the total contracts you propose plus Cano's 240 and you get 415M guaranteed over 4 players.

Pretty sweet I nailed the Beltran contract. Just wrong team.

That's an awesome pitching staff, and one that would keep them in a lot of games. The offense would suffer I think.

After this week I think they'll turn their attention to a big time outfielder (Choo or Cruz not Trumbo) and I actually will be shocked if they don't land Tanaka. Expect them to go 8/135. I suspect the delay on Cruz signing is the wait for Morales to sign his offer or somewhere else. Those guys might be interchangeable.

So sign Tanaka, Cruz/Morales, Choo.

Choo LF/RF
Miller SS
Cano 2B
Morales 1B/DH or Cruz RF/DH
Seager 3B
Smoak 1B/DH
Zunino C
Saunders LF
Ackley CF

Felix
Tanaka
Iwakuma
Ramirez
Paxton/Mauer/Walker

Good pen
Ok bench

Winner.

Hultzen is injured and out for the year so take out the Trumbo trade and have them pick up a Corey Hart or so and that's a pretty good lineup.

All of those guys are left-handed. Choo doesn't make sense for Seattle unless they trade Saunders.
