The Mariners have traded flamethrowing reliever Carter Capps to Miami for pedigree'd first baseman Logan Morrison. Depending on how the rest of the offseason shakes out, this could be a nifty little move. On the face of it, the Logan Morrison / Carter Capps trade is unbelievably Mariners. Selling low on a right-handed reliever with home run problems? Check. Acquiring one too many designated hitters, thereby forcing an incompetent and fragile defender into the outfield? Check. Giving a roster spot to a first baseman with the Justin Smoak high-BB mid-ISO low-BABIP skillset? Check. But as much...

The Mariners just gave themselves another logjam at 1B/DH. How's it all fit? The Mariners sure do like 1B/DH candidates.

Second baseman Robinson Cano is heading today to Seattle from the Dominican Republic to under a physical examination on Wednesday, according to a report by ESPNDesportes.com’s Enrique Rojas on twitter.

Assuming Rojas is correct again, that would likely set the stage for official confirmation of the deal on Thursday at an introductory news...
