UPDATE 2: This team steadfastly refuses to complete trades in a timely fashion.
UPDATE: Jarrod Washburn has been traded to the Yankees. Not yet sure on the return.
Go to town.
We're headed to the eighth inning, with Seattle down 8-3, but on the bigger news front, we're hearing buzz that Jarrod Washburn might not make it to tomorrow with the M's. A trade with the New York Yankees appears imminent. We're trying to peer into the dugout to see whether he's still there. We'll have an update after the game.
FSN's reporting a Washburn/Vidro for Cabrera/Igawa rumor.
Even Ibanez may not be affordable, however. Seattle hasn’t asked interested teams for specific names yet. But the Mariners are one of many clubs saying that, because Ibanez projects as a Type A free agent, they would want the equivalent of a first-round pick and a sandwich pick for him.
