Ryan Divish checks in from the GM Meetings where he and others caught up with Jerry Dipoto to get the latest on what the Mariners were looking for and why they elected to not extend the qualifying offer to Teoscar Hernández.

Jon Morosi also from the GM Meetings gives a number of names – both free agents and trade possibilities – he thinks could be in play for the Mariners.
