BEST OF MAXIM
The Seattle Mariners made some small changes to their uniforms this season as the celebrate their 35th anniversary in Seattle. Last season, they brought back their teal uniforms as an alternate, which was a welcomed addition as it was an alternate uniform that wasn't more of the same (like every team wearing black as an alternate).
This season they decided to take it a step...
With Felix Hernandez, Michael Pineda and Jason Vargas penciled in atop the rotation, the Mariners could use at least one more veteran arm to solidify a staff that figures to soon include an influx of promising young prospects.
Right-handed reliever Dan Cortes and versatile catcher Chris Gimenez were non-tendered by the Mariners on Monday night, meaning they were not offered contract renewals at Major League Baseball's 9 p.m. PT tender deadline.
The Winter Meetings have come and gone in Major League Baseball. With all the General Managers together, this is a hot bed of activity with players moving fast and furious. Indeed, one A.L. West team made a huge splash adding the best player in baseball, Albert Pujols, and a front-line starter, C.J. Wilson. With the Angels obviously improving and the Rangers having won back...

This deal follows in the footsteps of contracts...
About six weeks ago, relief pitcher Dan Cortes quietly underwent shoulder surgery conducted by team medical director Dr. Edward Khalfayan. The injury was said to have been caused by an off-season fall and prevented Cortes from going to winter ball as had been originally planned.
The Mariners and Indians appear to be the front-runners for free agent outfielder Josh Willingham, reports Jim Bowden of MLB Network Radio (on Twitter). The Rockies, Twins, and Rays were also in the mix at one point.
Willingham, 32, hit .246/.332/.477 with a career-high 29 home runs in 2011. The right-handed hitter tallied 829 1/3 innings in left field, and also has experience...
