The Mariners outfield, while appearing deep..may not actually be that deep.. Injuries, under performance and uncertainty are realistic concerns with Lewis, Trammel and Ju-Rod.. Haniger is a godsend to them.. and will want to keep him.. So.. this shouldn't take away a chance to make a deal with "Jumpy Jerry".. He's always ready to wheel & deal..The price on Rodriguez will likely be excessive. MLB has him ranked #2 in all of baseball. I think there'd be a higher chance of getting a buy low on Kelenic, but I'm not sure we'd like to deal with him either. Plus he'd hopefully be able to fill in from day 1.
With Ty France grasping and running with the 1B job.. Evan White, ceremonially offered and accepted a deal for six years including a couple club controlled option years that is very similar in many ways to the JRam deal.. Upon review of White's medicals.. make the Mariners an offer.. a real offer.. An SP candidate choice (Joey Cantillo, Scott Moss or Carlos Vargas others) & a middle infielder choice (Aaron Bracho, Owen Miller, Ernie Clement, Yu, others..) might just do it..
It could be the best deal of the off season..White was known for his glove and had quite a hitter's eye coming into the M's system..
