Currently Ichiro is playing CF and i heard he is liking it. Chris Snelling is playing a great RF for the team as of now but we all know he has a glass body. I know that Adam Jones is still the CF of the future for the Mariners, but is that future next year? Do they plan on putting Jones back in CF to start the year next year and Ichiro back in RF?
I believe Ben Broussard's contract is over after this year. I think Sea can offer arbitration if they choose to but I think it might be in their best interest not to. Broussard is currently slated as Sea's DH but next year it might be a good idea to move Ibanez (going to be 34 and not a great fielder) to the DH spot. They could certainly use the money to spend on some pitching, which only has Felix and Washburn as sure member of the the rotation since Moyer is gone and Pineiro & Meche are pending FAs.
if Snelling gets hurt they move Reed in the mix.
