Mariners closing in on Delgado 

While the Rangers continue to futz around with people like Tino Martinez for their DH spot, their A.L. West rival Seattle is supposedly the favorite to land stud Blue Jay 1B Carlos Delgado.

The 32 year old Delgado has a career .318 EQA, and despite having a disappointing season for Toronto in 2004, still posted a .303 EQA last season.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer report indicates that Delgado's knee, which slowed him significantly last season, has been checked out and found to be sound.

This is disappointing news...Delgado would be a terrific pickup for Seattle, and he's a player who would be ideal for the DH role in Texas.
