05:25 AM ET 11.08 | While the Mariners have a young, but talented roster, they haven't been able to do anything beyond be barely relevant thanks to Felix Hernandez being one of the best arms in baseball. But the Mariners have money to spend and a roster full of players that can move around, which means if they wanted to go out and spend big in free agency, they're in a great position to reel in a top target. Like Josh Hamilton. We speculated earlier this month that the Mariners could look to add Zack Greinke to their rotation to add an extra punch behind Hernandez. But if they don't go after Greinke, another target that insiders are projecting Seattle could be hot after is outfielder Josh Hamilton. However, unlike the talks of Greinke to Seattle, the Hamilton to Seattle rumor holds some water since the Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik has publicly stopped short of saying he's one of their top targets.

Seattle is known for great coffee and excellent heroin. I don't see a problem.

Seattle has a pitchers park, but the way Josh hits them, I don't think it would hurt him THAT much. I would like to see the M's pony up the money for him. The spotlight isn't very bright up there either.

the mariners haven't had a top outfielder since KENT G,/ JAY BUHNER left, the mariners need some leader in their lineup, but hamilton has too many issues, tobaco/ alcohol/drugs/ plus the biggers problemA HUGE INJURY RASH that can't go away!!!

The M's allowed a boatload of talent walk to most recent Mr M's himself Griffey, A-rod Beltre as of late Cliff Lee. The only reason why Hernandez doesn't want to be traded is he doesn't have to pay state Taxes. So translation they didn't pay their best ever player I don't see them paying Josh Hamilton beside they never really paid Ichiro.

Crab Pot Resturant is what keeps Seattle Relevent in Sports, pushing your way away from the Table is difficult as batting against Felix Hernandez, that being said they should take a shot with Hamilton!!! Day 12 still no power, Sandy was really pissed off, This is Sad we Still haven't seen our President in NY, they ripped into Bush for visiting New Orleans after 3 Days, Go Figure!!!
