07:32 AM ET 12.19 | Even after Seattle signed Robinson Cano, the question lingers. What the heck are the Mariners doing? Club officials are signaling to certain agents and others in the industry that the team is near its payroll limit, though certain exceptions may be made for the right player. Perhaps that player is left-hander David Price, whom the Mariners continue to discuss in trade conversations with the Rays, according to major-league sources. Perhaps that player is free-agent outfielder Nelson Cruz, who would be a more realistic choice than first baseman/outfielder Corey Hart to serve as the right-handed complement to Cano. Whatever, it had better be somebody. ... The move, it appeared, was an attempt to regain credibility, rekindle a dormant, disgruntled fan base. But Cano, 31, cannot do all of that alone.

Stay away from Cruz. He has bust written all over him.As for Price, he may not be worth what it would take to get him.

Price apparently already signalled that he wouldn't sign an extension with the M's, although enough $$$ would probably take care of that as with Cano. Doubt they actually have that much $$$ to spend...

What's the hurry? The M's have 10 yrs to build a team around Cano.

Cruz is a terrible defensive player, if they use him to DL, then they should move on him, Price would put this team in the middle of the Mix!

What a dumb article - Price has said already he will not sign a contract extension in Seattle if traded there and Cruz has become clean supposedly, so you probably would over pay for someone that use to produce.
