Chone Figgins is a Mariner

It is official.  As of this afternoon, Figgins is wearing a Mariners jersey and will bat second behind Ichiro.  If Ichiro was not high on your fantasy roster, he should be this year with a patient hitter right behind.  The deal will put him in a Mariner uniform for 4 years with an option for a 5th.  He will be our everyday third baseman (at the time of this writing) since Beltre did not accept arbitration. 

I am beyond pleased with this pickup.  Between Ichiro and Figgins, I hope to see at least 75 SBs next year.  Now, lets see what the Mariners do with the rest of the batting order this week.  I am still holding out some hope for Jason Bay…some.
