Well, this could certainly count as a major move by the Mariners on the trade front. They just shipped left-handed starter Jason Vargas to the Los Angeles Angels for first baseman/DH Kendrys Morales. At first glance, this move fills a need for both teams. The Mariners have wanted a veteran 1B/DH for a while now and picked one up in Morales, 29, who would not have been so available before the Angels acquired Josh Hamilton.
