We will have coverage throughout the week including any breaking news as it breaks and a live blog/recap every night with the rundown of the latest moves and rumors.

————————

There has been a lot of excitement across Major League Baseball over this past week. Several of the major free agents have new homes including Robinson Cano shocking the baseball world by agreeing to a 10-year $240 million deal with the Seattle Mariners.

But the Winter Meetings begin Monday in Orlando and that is when the roller coaster reaches the crest and begins it’s downhill descent into the curves.

In other words, the fun has yet to begin.

Let’s take a few minutes to look at some of the story lines surrounding the Mariners this week and some of the different possibilities that are out there now that the first chip has fallen.

    Is Hart healthy?

    Yes Hart is healthy and ready to go. I posted a link to an article that talked about it but it disappeared (at least I’m not seeing it now). Hart has been cleared by his doctor for full duty.

    To me, if the idea is winning during Cano’s best years, then you keep Walker at the discounted price for 6 years, rather than the 2 years of Price at a comparably high price that could be spent elsewhere (ie Colon).

    The most simple way to put it is that Seattle has a bad reputation with free agents because of the pitcher’s park perception, though they were near the top of power numbers in 2013, so other than Cano, try to sign free agent pitchers, and use your assets to trade for bats. I don’t want those assets to be Walker or Paxton though, that could have been the case before the Hultzen injuries.

    Don’t trade Walker. Fire GMZ for falsifying his reseume
