The Seattle Mariners are serious about free-agent outfielder Josh
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Coming Home (ish)
The Mariners finally made a move while at the Winter meetings. While the Seattle franchise has been linked to just about every free agent that can hit above .220, the M’s agreed to terms with Mets outfielder Jason Bay.
I had a rush of emotion about this when I heard about it. First I got caught up in the memories of Bay’s 36 home runs for the Red Sox in...
This year at the Winter Meetings, one team seems interested in every hitter on the market: the Seattle Mariners. They've apparently talked about (and this is not an inclusive list) Josh Hamilton, Michael Bourn, Billy Butler, Jason Bay, Raul Ibanez...you get the picture. Every and any hitter with a pulse has been mentioned in the same breath as the offensively challenged Mariners...
The Seattle Mariners are making a strong push to sign free
agent slugger Josh Hamilton and they are actually “very close” to getting a
deal done, reports Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times.
But I’m now told the talks between the two sides have been a
lot more serious than anyone has let on and that they are actually “very close”
to getting a deal done.
THE RIME OF THE NEW MARINER?
The Mariners reportedly have established themselves as a player in the Josh Hamilton Sweepstakes and are rumored to be offering him a three-year, big money deal.
The Milwaukee Brewers did not make a selection in any of the three phases of Thursday's annual Rule 5 draft at the winter meetings in Nashville.
As expected, Milwaukee lost second baseman Eric Farris in the Triple-A phase of the draft, to the Seattle Mariners. Farris, Milwaukee's fourth-round pick in 2007, had two different stints with the big-league club, playing in one...
As the market for center fielders dwindles, the Seattle Mariners loom as one possibility for Michael Bourn.
At least on the surface.
The Mariners, if they fail to land outfielder Josh Hamilton, are still going to need offense. And Bourn is the next best offensive player remaining on the open market, though certainly not a slugger like Hamilton.
Here’s the problem:
The Hot Stove is heating up in Major League Baseball and the Mariners have been all over the place. With promises of additions this offseason, the front office is working to deliver for the fans.
Here are some players that could end up in Seattle and how they would fit on the team. This list includes some ideas that will probably have changed by press time, and...
Earlier Thursday morning Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times reported that a deal between free agent slugger Josh Hamilton and the Seattle Mariners was getting “very close”. I’m now told the talks between the two sides have been a lot more serious than anyone has let on and that they are actually “very close” to [...]
The Seattle Mariners have signed outfielder Jason Bay, Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports. The deal is for around $1mm, Greg Johns of MLB.com adds.
Bay still had one year left on his four-year $66mm deal he signed with the Mets. The parties however agreed to part ways which allowed Bay to sign with his home town Mariners.
During his time in New York, he not only battled...
