Eh, Wilkerson was a good signing IMO (didn't cost much, 1-year contract, and he had been a very quality player in the past). Every season where he has had at least 500 AB's, he has had over 80 walks. The Mariners never get a guy who can draw a walk so this was a good change. Of course, Wilkerson has been crap the last few years so I am optimistic on him getting back to his old form. Either way, he is a low risk, high reward type of signing. If he sucks it up, they can bench him in favor of someone else, such as Wladimir. Also, Jose Guillen was the worst defensive RF in baseball last year. Wilkerson is an improvement on defense believe it or not.
