Over the past week I have learned that talks between Chone Figgins and the Seattle Mariners have begun to heat up.
During the week they reached a preliminary agreement with Chone Figgins on a four-year, $36 Million dollar deal, with a $9 Million dollar option for a fifth year. Jack Zduriencik has put together a fantastic defensive team, and adding Figgins to the top of the lineup alongside Ichiro will certainly set the stage for their offense. Figgins signed for less than what I thought he'd get; got to like it for the Mariners.
This will give the Mariners an extra spark in the in and out fieldthat they need.
This deal will be a thing to watch in the weeks to come.
