Edgar Martinez hurting 

Fragile Mariner DH Edgar Martinez, who needs to be healthy and productive this year for the Mariners to win the AL West, is suffering from a bone spur in his neck. This, along with his perpetual hamstring problems, would seem to suggest that Mariners could use a productive bench guy who can DH...even better if he's a righty who can play first, since John Olerud can't hit lefties any more.

Greg Colbrunn would seem to be a perfect fit for the Mariners...and why isn't he there any more? Oh yeah, the Mariners decided to trade him to the D-Backs (with cash) for Quinton McCracken, who can run fast.

Well, maybe the D-Backs would be willing to send him back to Seattle. It would probably cost more than McCracken to get him, but what the hell...

Oh, and the D-Backs are also really hyped about Conor Jackson, whom they drafted with Seattle's first round pick in 2003...the one Seattle gave up as a result of signing Greg Colbrunn in the first place.

Well, at least there is one A.L. West team whose management seems to be giving the Rangers a run for their money in the incompetence department...
