It hasn't been an offseason full of headlines and superstar names for the Seattle Mariners, but the fairly quiet winter has been a success.
Jack Zduriencik was unable to reel in big names on the market such as Josh Hamilton, B.J. Upton or Zack Greinke, but the additions of Raúl Ibañez and Kendrys Morales are bigger victories than they seem. The two veteran left-handed hitters will add experience, depth and offense to the lineup this season.
The 2012 offseason roster adjustments will help the Mariners contend in the A.L. West in 2013.
