Chone Figgins to the Mariners?

New, 276 comments

Lot of rumors out there about Chone Figgins are heating up the hot stove.

Will he be signing with the Seattle Mariners?

UPDATE: Sports Illustrated John Heyman twitters: 4 years, $35 Million, Figgy close to signing with M's.

After last week's sighting of Figgy on a golf course in Hawaii, yours truly was convinced he would be available for another week or two. But according to Ken Rosenthal he is headed to the Emerald City for a frapuccino with Sasquatchiro.

Other sources say that the ink has not left the pen and that while Desmond DeChone has been offered 4 years $32 million from the Portland Cobains of Aberdeen, his hometown discount loyalty is being tested by a 3 year, $24 million deal from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

And of course, another team looking for a singles-hitting On-Base machine with excellent infield leather could swoop in and drop more than $9 million a year for a good track record of health and positive chemistry.
