Mariners Close to Signing Carlos Silva

Per Ken Rosenthal, and confirming what I had heard earlier this morning, the M’s and Carlos Silva are not far from a four year agreement that would bring the strike-throwing, contact specialist to Seattle.

Yep – Carlos Silva, 4 years, $44 million. This organization never learns.

    135: Interesting point. If you haven’t yet, check out Baseball Ref’s career stats on Tommy John and Randy Jones from back in the 70’s & 80’s — each had a few BB/K-per-9 seasons which were mind-boggling.

    Definitely NOT saying that Silva is CY/HOF material…however, he might not wind up being a total disaster, either.

    Remember when he stated that the team had to get younger and then he went right out and tried to trade Carlos Guillen for 137 year old Omar Visquel?

    Thank goodness that deal fell through and he got a young guy like Ramon Santiago instead. A great trade, in hindsight, since Santiago is now a better ss than Guillen–Carlos being relegated to 1B nowdays, and it’s not like the Mariners need a 1Bperson . . . 😉

    152: Yes…but you know, of course, that a DWI absolutely CANNOT be forgiven if you’re a native of Venezuela.

    If you’re a native of Clark County, however, it’s apparently a different story… 😮
