More rumor mill fodder
Confirming that yesterday, an independent source said the club would fit the sluggers into the defense by asking Sexson to play left field much of the time.
“What they are hoping is to have a rotation of Delgado, Sexson and (Raul) Ibanez for first base, left and DH,” the source said.
Well, now, we’ve got this:
If the Mariners come to agreement with one of the sluggers, that would knock the offer to the other off the table.
The available money has fluctuated from $13 million to $16 million and now is mentioned at between $15-16 million.
I’ll repeat what I’ve been saying ever since the offseason started. Patience, folks. The M’s aren’t going to do anything until the winter meetings. All this stuff is just filler.
