In February, we learned that Jesus Montero had been linked to the Miami-based Biogenesis. At the time, the Mariners released the following statement:

"The Seattle Mariners strongly support Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, and are disappointed any time we hear of any players potentially involved with banned substances. “We are aware of the report which appeared today in The New York Daily News and have been in contact with Major League Baseball to discuss it. “This matter is now in the hands of the Commissioner’s Office. At this time, with no additional information, we will have no further comment until that investigation has concluded, and all other questions should be directed to Major League Baseball.”"

We also sent Mike Carp to the Boston Red Sox after he was designated for assignment when the M’s signed Joe Saunders.

Then Spring Training got underway and hope, throughout March at least, sprung eternal.
