Via Jon Heyman: The Yankees are “weighing a run” a free agent first baseman/DH Kendrys Morales. Their scouting reports grade him out as a solid defender and a positive in the clubhouse. The Mariners did make him a qualifying offer, so the Bombers would have to forfeit a high draft pick (18th overall) to sign

For once, everything has gone according to plan. When I endorsed extending Kendrys Morales a qualifying offer two months ago, I was gambling on Scott Boras. There's no question if Morales would have accepted, his 1 year, $14.1 million contract would have been an overpay, but the evidence of Scott Boras accepting qualifying offers (or arbitration) just wasn't there. There's going to be a thin market for Morales, but that hasn't stopped Boras from making a late deal for a good chunk of money before, and it probably won't stop him this time either.

Following all of the news and analysis related to Kendrys Morales and his qualifying offer. They said they were going to do it, and they've followed through. The Mariners extended impending free agent Kendrys Morales a qualifying offer today, for an estimated figure of 1 year, $14.1 million. Scott Boras is expected to advise that Morales reject this offer and explore his options elsewhere, which I'd normally question if it weren't for Boras' ability drum up interest out of nowhere and get teams to bid against themselves.

Who is going to sign Kendrys Morales if the Mariners don't? With just six days left for Morales to decide whether he wants to accept the Mariners qualifying offer, we should examine the rest of the market, to see where he might actually land up if it's not here. It might be a stupid idea. Don't read this, Kendrys. You too, Scott. Lots of teams want you, so stop reading right now and go polish up the resume, the one that says you can play first base all the time and will a way better hitter outside of Seattle. And definitely decline that bullshit qualifying offer. More: Making Kendrys...
