M’s deny Millwood 4/$44 offer
Short version: teams says they haven’t even talked seriously yet, much less gotten all the way to sliding a piece of paper across the table.
Almost as interesting was this, though:
Bavasi said that the Mariners had merely inquired about A.J. Burnett, who inked a five-year, $55 million deal with the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, and that they had shown interest in the other three starters who have signed in recent days: Byrd, Loaiza and Hector Carrasco.
In characterizing the club’s interest in the four, Bavasi said, “One a ton, one a medium amount, one a little and one an inquiry.”
