Back On Brock And Salk Today

I’m doing a spot with the boys at ESPN 710 at 11:30 today, talking Jose Lopez and potential free agents for the Mariners. We won’t be doing a weekly spot during the offseason, but I’ll pop in from time to time, and we’ll be sure to let you know when they have me on.

    Does Kotchman’s refusal to go to Tacoma, relieve the team of the money he is owed next year? I know baseball rather well, but am left in the dark when it comes to contract talk.

    The Mariners luckily are not on the hook for any of Kotchmans next paycheck. No arb, no buy out, nothing.

    Yet another failed ’10 Mariner experiment swept into the dustbin.

    Seems to me…given that Kotchman was actually seen as a viable option in 2010, it underscores the importance of player development in your system…and, yes, you indeed need to be patient to let that system produce.

    Kotchman wasn’t owed anything for 2011. I believe he had a year of arbitration left, but like Lopez, if the Mariners non tendered him anyway, he’s just a free agent.

    Toronto GM did new and interesting thing tonight trading for Olivo a type B free agent then declined the option. Colorado gets out of the financial obligation and Jays get a draft pick if Olivo declines arbitration. So they are taking some risk but one worth trying. Jays are looking to repeat last year where they rebuilt their top prospects through the draft.

    Uh oh. Olivo for backup C?

    He did have a sterling .211/.276/.322 road split for 2010. A vast improvement over the .151/.172/.276 line he put up on the season with the M’s in ’05.

    No its much more likely a sup. draft pick for 500K as Olivo will decline arbitration.
