More not likely things to happen. I'm sure whatever Jack does, it will be a surprise to us all.

I'd pass on this one, the shine went off of him this season and we don't need any more reclamation projects than we already have.

Agreed. If the Mariners want to add depth at 1B, it should AT LEAST be a proven bat with MLB success. LaRoche would make more sense to me, however I believe that his asking price will be too high for where we are willing to go. I have a feeling Mike Morse might be the next discussion coming up on this site.

LaRoche is coming of a career year. A bad time to overpay.
Keep in mind, this may not be the year to make wholesale changes. I'm more than willing to let Smoak prove himself with the changes in Safeco. It clearly affected him mentally last season. I could go one more year to find out.
The place to improve in in one of the corner outfield positions. That would be my primary choice to add a bat. Seattle does not have a lot of outfield depth in the minor league system, yet. But, it's on its way.

#4 Totally agree.

While I'm far from a LoMo fan, if the risk was low enough I would be very interested. This is the kind of guy who could break out big time with a change of scenery.

I am of the belief the M's will target guys with buy low sell high potential. If they get lucky and hit on one or two and flip them to get ready for 2014. And then spend on F/A in 2014.
Targets that make sense for me.

All have had or shown glipses of being something really good at some time. Some lost it do to injury, 5cent head or lost confidence.
