Welcome back Mariners faithful. We have reached the end of my Five-part series: GM For a Day. Where I take a look at how I would fix the Seattle Mariners with five moves if I were given GM powers for 24 hours.

Before we get into the final step I would take, let me quickly remind those of you just joining us what the first four steps were.

Step 1: Shake Up the Minor Leagues

In part one, I suggested as many of you have over the years, that the Mariners organization has a flaw in its player-development. To remedy this, I suggested letting go of Chris Gwynn as the Director of Player Development and hiring Dan Wilson to replace him.

    I would be happy with Wallach, Hale or Cora, in that order. Give them some talent and I think they can get the most out of them.
    As for that talent, what about Carlos Beltran? At 37 he has shown he can still get it done. I would also consider bringing back Wilie Bloomquist, he can play second, short, third, left and right, he had a .317/.360/.367/.727 line and is a tough, hard-nosed character, Both these guys would add a great presence on this team. Make an offer to Brian Wilson as well, he wants to stay on the West Coast and we have the spot for him.
    Go M’s!
