Felix Hernandez is one of the best pitchers in baseball, and the Mariners might not be opposed to paying him as such.
According to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal, the Mariners continue to talk to Hernandez about a contract extension, and they’re “at least weighing” a four-year, $100 million proposal.
Rosenthal reports that it’s not known whether the Mariners have made Hernandez such an offer, but no deal is close at the moment. A source reportedly described the two sides as “dancing,” but not completely engaged.
Hernandez, whose current deal runs through 2014, has made it clear that he loves playing in Seattle. One has to think that the 26-year-old could be in line to land a monster deal, though, so perhaps he’ll opt to test the open market after his current contract expires, which might not bode well for the Mariners’ chances of securing the right-hander past 2014.
As Rosenthal points out, a four-year, $100 million extension tacked on to the two years still remaining on Hernandez’s ...

The Seattle Mariners' offseason focus was on adding bats to the worst offense in baseball.
They believe they accomplished their goal with the additions of Kendrys Morales and Michael Morse, and they hope Jason Bay and Raul Ibanez still have some pop left in their bats.
The additional benefit is that they added some veterans that manager Eric Wedge and general manager Jack Zduriencik...
The next big contract in baseball? It could go to Felix Hernandez.
The Seattle Mariners continue to talk to Hernandez about an extension, according to major-league sources. And while no deal is close, the Mariners are at least weighing a four-year, $100 million proposal, sources said.
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...
Ken Griffey Jr. will be inducted into the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame as its seventh member.
The Mariners announced the induction Tuesday. Griffey's ceremony will take place Aug. 10 before the Mariners face the Milwaukee Brewers.
Griffey spent 13 of his 22 seasons in the majors with the Mariners. He was drafted by Seattle in 1987, made his debut at the major league level...
Mike Morse debuted with Seattle at shortstop during the 2005 season. Four seasons after leaving the Northwest, Morse returns all of 50 pounds heavier, regarded as one of the top sluggers in baseball.
Having finished our countdown of the Top-50 prospects in the Seattle Mariners organization, we now give you a look at some more names to know in the minor leagues for the M's. Either because of short track record, injury problems or uninspiring statistical showings, these players didn't make the cut for that list, but they still show enough promise to warrant being on the watch list.
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.
The Mariners and their lowly offense needed a power bat and Jackie Z went out and got a power bat. But of course that is not the whole...
Each and every year we see big name free agents sign deals that are absolutely ludicrous and well beyond the player’s actual value. Each and every year we see people lambaste the Yankees for having a roster full of terrible deals and overpriced stars. Each and every year we see a small market team with a small payroll doing much better than a team with a payroll of $100 million...
Fox Sports Ken Rosenthal is reporting that pitcher Felix Hernandez has been in talks with the Seattle Mariners about extending his contract. The early rumors are that Hernandez could be offered a four-year extension at $100 million. Hernandez currently has two more years remaining on his contract; therefore, such an extension would put him [...]
