The Los Angeles Dodgers are in this awkward limbo at short stop. Hanley Ramirez, the Dodger’s shortstop for the past two and a half seasons, declined his qualifying offer and is now free to choose with any team.

Are the M's again looking for an expensive marginal upgrade?

Last December, the Seattle Mariners signed Robinson Cano to a contract worth slightly more than the GDP of all Palau.
