When Jack Zduriencik completed the deal that landed the Mariners Michael Morse, he was not applauded for his efforts. In fact, the countdown to his dismissal as the Mariner general manager was started or perhaps the clock was just sped up a bit.

It is not known whether the Mariners actually have made Hernandez such an offer; one source described...

The Seattle Mariners and their general manager, Jack Zduriencik, are making leaps and bounds in progress over this 2012-13 offseason.
For starts, the Mariners picked up additional middle infield talent (see: http://t.co/QAJryJH1) in Robert Andino and in the Triple-A portion of the Winter Meetings, we selected 2nd baseman Eric Ferris from the Brewers. Our middle infield starters...
