Via the Rocky Mountain News:
Seattle indicated it wanted a starting pitcher, an area where the Rockies do not have a surplus.
As far as I can tell, there are two ways to take this:
- The Mariners' offseason priority list reads "fix the rotation, then fix everything else."
- The Mariners are looking to make a bigger splash in left field than Larry Bigbie.
I could be wrong. Certainly wouldn't be the first time. But, man, this team really needs to build a rotation, so they might as well find out how much they can get for Torrealba before settling for someone like Bigbie.
