I Can't Stop Posting...

...about this damned Erik Bedard trade.

Despite denials from The Warehouse, there are more signs that the deal with the Mariners will happen. According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

"The Mariners appear to be close to signing Brad Wilkerson, an outfielder who could help the Mariners fill the opening in right field that a trade of Adam Jones to Baltimore would leave."

The Mariners have done some silly things in the past but would they really be trying to sign Wilkerson at this point if there were not an opening in RF?

Assuming they were to keep Jones, they would have to split Wilkerson's time between 1B and DH where they already have Richie Sexson, Jose Vidro and young Mike Morse. No way they sign a vet like Wilkerson to ride the pine when they have very good options already in their system.

C'mon, Angelos. Let's get this one over with...

You might as well get back to the geezers. I think we have a few days while this one simmers.
