While the Mariners keep dumpster diving, we keep counting down the days until pitchers and catchers report.

Here's a look at what happened with the team this week and in the blogosphere, such as the M's signing OF Gabe Gross to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training and the effects Safeco Field has on certain types of players.

Read about how awesome Nick Franklin might be on and off the field.

Milton Bradley's court hearing has been pushed back. Sorry folks, but we're stuck with him and his contract.

Felix Hernandez's big brother has signed with the Mariners. Unfortunately, looking like Felix is all they have in common.

Speaking of King Felix, his Twitter account is finally verified. Trying to match the timing of his tweets to when he'd realistically be available to do so was getting frustrating. He tweets in Spanish often, which gives you a chance to use Google's translator. beat writer Greg Johns digs up some answers on the progress of a Dave Niehaus statue. You'll have to dig through the silly questions to hear about it, though.

Vladimir Guerrero's nephew, Gabriel, signed (video included) as an international free agent. He's 17 years old, and is described as having raw power with a strong arm and projects as a corner outfielder. He gets a $400,000 bonus.

RHP Manny Delcarmen was signed to a minor league deal, but he has a problem. Add him to the heap of players the Mariners now have extended invites to spring training to.

There will be a whopping 33 pitchers in camp. Let's hope 12 of them don't suck.
