It’s Official: Cliff Lee Is A Mariner
Joy to the world! Am I right? Wow, this trade really light’s up the Great Northwest, doesn’t it?
I heard some disappointment from you fans out there after Jack Zduriencik and his crew left the winter meetings with no deals in place. But this is the way Mr. Z works – and he’s making quite a case for your trust, if he didn’t already have it.
Ok – pitching is in place to be one of the strongest in the American League – what I want to know now is where they’re going to get their ‘pop!’. The addition of Chone Figgins will certainly help, but the Mariners will need a little more than that to give these guys the run support they deserve.
But that’s for another day – we’ve got three months until spring training and a lot could happen in that time. Right now – rejoice! For your 1-2 punch is a knockout in Felix Hernandez and Cliff Lee.
We’re going to chat with Mariners GM, Jack Zduriencik, at 3:25pm PT. Tune in to 710 ESPN Seattle or stream it live right here on the website.
Also – don’t miss The Hot Stove League Show tonight with Mariners Insiders, Shannon Drayer and Rick Rizzs, who will be joined by Mariners legends, Jay Buhner and Dave Niehaus. It’s right here from 6-8p on 710 ESPN Seattle.
