Down to the wire
The trade deadline is officially 55 minutes away, but keep in mind that a lot of deals are completed at near the last minute and don’t become public for several hours. As long as the paperwork is in the commissioner’s office by 1 pm pacific time, it beats the deadline. So, if you don’t hear anything at 1:01, don’t panic.
As for the latest news, it sounds like Villone to Florida for Yorman Bazardo is just about done.
Edited to add: Confirmed, the Mariners have dealt Ron Villone to Florida for Yorman Bazardo and Mike Flannery.
The M’s are still asking for a big return for Guardado, and they may or may not get something done on that front.
It sounds like everyone else is going to stick around.
