Figgins introduced today and other hot stove notes

Josh FlemingContributor IJune 28, 2016

As everyone waits on the official news regarding Cliff Lee, Chone Figgins was introduced as the newest Mariner.  Again, I cannot stress how pleased I am with this move.  I hope it pans out because it has the potential to be an interesting batting order.

Lackey singed with Boston and the Angels are getting Matsui and his bad knees.  It begs the question, what about Vlad?  So, now you have bad hamstrings with Vladimir, bad knees with Matsui which means two fairly high paid DH’s.  I wonder if Vladimir is able to go somewhere else, cheap. 

I am sure the Mariners are eager to finalize this Lee trade deal.  It appears that the “known” minor league players from Seattle to Philadelphia are Aumont and an outfield prospect in Tyson Gillies.  Toronto is set to receive a previous “untouchable” prospect in Kyle Drabek.  If all this prospect talent makes it to the show, it will be interesting to see who really benefits. 

Where can I comment?
