I don't think that Escobar or Nolasco will command much of a return seeing as Nolasco is overpaid for what he does and Escobar is coming off less-than-stellar season. Morisson would bring back more than either. Stanton would bring back twice as much as all three combined.

Escobar will bring back something of value, even if it's not that much. Nolasco wont bring back anything other than 'something' in physical form. He's useless, and the only teams that will want him are the ones who need someone to eat innings with a #5. Don't forget though, he's on a contract year and he does have pitching ability. Roller coaster piece of shit.

Stanton probably has one of the highest prices in the league, so I can imagine they'll hold off on trading Stanton right now because nobody wants to pay the Marlins full price in the middle of a fire sale.

I think most teams would pay full price for Stanton despite the fire sale.

I like the signing. Because it is only three years. They need some power in that lineup, and he should be able to provide that, especially at Fenway where he has historically done well.

So I think the Mariners are linked to almost everyone and will sign/trade for no one. They were linked to Napoli and Martin. They've been linked to Hamilton, Swisher, Bourn, Bay (barf), Justin Upton, Billy Butler, Alex Gordon, and Wil Myers.

I'd be more than happy if the Mariners jettisoned some of their minor league pitching for some combination of guys like Gordon, Myers, Upton.

You're probably going to get Jason Bay.

As long as he's a free NRI, I don't care. He's basically a free Chone Figgins.

Including the buyout, Haren is getting paid pretty well for a guy with injury concern coming off a very down year.

Rumor floating around right now that the Phillies and Diamondbacks are talking about a Justin Upton-Cliff Lee trade. The Phils would have to send some money along since Lee's deal is so ridiculous.

Apparently that deal holds no water.

Pedro Gomez is full of shit, then. Send him back to Barry Bonds' front yard.

Yeah. Even considering age and defense, a big improvement over James Loney.

Don't really care for this pending Shane Victorino deal though. I think the Sox could have gotten a similar player for much less.
