2010 Seattle Mariners Offseason Plan

I'll admit this is mostly speculation, but there is quite a lot of reasoning behind my ideas. This is just free writing my ideas, so here it is, my 2010 Seattle Mariners offseason plan.

1. Swap Brandon Morrow and JJ Hardy. Morrow is expendable given our pitching depth, and Hardy has a great glove and a very potent bat.

2. Trade Bryan Lahair, Jose Lopez, Jason Vargas, Ryan Langerhans, and Carlos Peguero to the Florida Marlins for Jorge Cantu, Ricky Nolasco, and a B-type prospect.

3. Trade Jorge Cantu and Randy Messanger to the Twins for Nick Blackburn.

4. Sign Scott Podsednick to a $2.5 million, one-year deal.

5. Sign Ken Griffey Jr. to a $1.25 million deal with $4 million in performance incentives.

6. Sign Adrian Beltre to a $27 million, three-year deal.

7. Sign Russell Branyan to $10 million over two years.

8. If signing Griffey fails, sign Nick Johnson to $9 million deal.

9. Extend Felix Hernandez and Franklin Gutierrez to $90 million over six years.


Here's how the roster would look if these aforementioned deals happened.
