07:32 AM ET 01.27 | Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik took the occasion of Mariners FanFest to report that he expected more roster moves were coming in the final weeks of the offseason. [But] he again sounded as if the club is looking at complementary additions rather than a blockbuster signing from among the remaining free agents. ... Zduriencik would like to add a No. 3 starter to his rotation, but he doesn't sound enamored with the current asking prices of Ervin Santana and Ubaldo Jimenez, the other two premier pitchers on the market. Santana, 31, had a strong year for the Royals last year with a 3.24 ERA in 211 innings, but he was 9-13 with a 5.16 ERA the previous year for the Angels and has been up and down throughout his career. Jimenez, 30, had a big bounce-back year for the Indians last year with a 3.30 ERA in 32 starts.

Don't know about SEA - some big signings but not sure they have all the pieces they need- or - are even close.....

Nice way of telling the M's fans we tried but fail to improve our team with impact players and will suffer through another season in Seattle with losing baseball.

Sign both of them.

Finally, some common sense is floating in the air

Let's validate your thoughts, they don't have all the pieces to compete but they have a heck of a 2nd baseman

They should sign these two guys and roll the dice, otherwise, they wasted their money on Cano!

Unless they think Cano can hit and pitch.
