Seattle Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu joined Mike on “radio row” this morning at the winter meetings in Indianapolis to discuss the signing of Chone Figgins, what his experience at the winter meetings is like, and more. Wakamatsu, who has known Figgins since Chone was in Double AA ball, wakamatsuexplained that “any day I’d rather have him on my team than against us.” One thing many people are wondering is how the top of the line-up will look with Ichiro and Figgins both being great leadoff hitters:

“Well, you’re about the 900th person to ask me about what I’m going to do with that. Everybody has ideas. But a lot of it is going to depend on the rest of what happens this winter.”
