The Winter Meetings
Over the next four days, Nashville will be the center of the baseball world, with lots of rumors on prospective trades, and each team meeting to discuss the upcoming season. The Mariners contingent includes several members of the Baseball Operations staff, led by General Manager Jack Zduriencik. Over the next few days Jack and his group will meet to talk about prospective players they can add to the roster through free agency, trades and the Rule 5 Draft. There are no guarantees that any deals will get done, but there is a ton of work being put in behind the scenes that will leave no rock unturned.
We will try to update you as best as possible in regards to news coming out of Nashville, but we highly recommend you follow the Seattle beat writers that made the trek to Nashville:

To start the meetings off, Zduriencik will be on the MLB Network at 9:30 am CT (7:30 am Seattle time) and XM Radio at 9:45 Monday morning. We’ll try to post archived video and audio from both interviews.
