That lack of excitement has potential to change this off-season with all of the rumors surrounding the Mariners and their quest for big players like Robinson Cano and there interest in Matt Kemp. However, one rumor which has surfaced in the past day or two is that the David Price trade sweepstakes are truly heating up and that the Mariners have the pieces to make it happen. The Tampa Bay Rays are a very smart organization and a trade for David Price will certainly cost a lot. The Mariners do have the pieces to make this move happen.

There is no way…or is there a way Robinson Cano signs with the Seattle Mariners?

However, I am...

Sources: Bloomquist deal with #Mariners is $5.8M for two years. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) December...
