07:19 AM ET 07.05 | 'Tis the season for trade talk, so step right up, Seattle. [The Mariners] are sure to be front and center in the trade rumors as July 31 approaches. That's what happens when 21 teams are within seven games of either the division lead or wild-card status. It puts a lot of focus on the small group positioned to be sellers, and the Mariners at the moment are solidly in that camp. ... There's still almost a month to perhaps change this dynamic, but right now the Mariners set up as a team with numerous veterans to deal. We'll examine the specifics of that soon (though you know the names that will likely come into play -- Kendrys Morales, Michael Morse, Oliver Perez, Brendan Ryan, Raul Ibanez and Joe Saunderss, most prominently).

Ibanez is still putting up big numbers at the age of 41.

Buck would give his right #@! for a quality starter.

Ibanez good numbers but over 40
Ryan glove man with no stick
Morales just another over-played player
Perez under 500 career lefty finish
Saunderss keeps hanging around because he is a left-handed starter
Morse would help some team with his bat, but good be a liability in the field in the NL

Morales will end up in pinstripes, just because. Ibanez maybe to the Rangers or maybe to the BoSox. Sanders?, maybe to the Angels?

Can't have King Felix, probably can't have Iwakuma, so Saunders might be the best pitcher available from the M's. Somehow I don't think Buck would be all that excited to get Saunders.
