The real question is, why are the Mariners buyers? Makes no sense, they have little to no shot playing in October.

Well it's not like they parted with any major prospects, and they were essentially desperate to get rid of Jeff Clement. I think they did pretty well.

Maybe looking to fill gap that Washburn trade will leave and still get rid of Clement.

I had been excited thinking Clement was headed somewhere where he could play C on the MLB level or at least get steady PT. Now he's blocked by Doumit, Pearce, and Jones. %-6

From what I've seen Jones is kind of a circus act in the OF. I think once the Pearce experiment is over....again....that Jones will move to 1B where he should be, and Milledge will go to the OF.

Who knows, maybe Clement will be part of a later deal too.

Yeah, this is my first thought, too.

Why trade for Clement when you have Doumit? :-S :-S :-S

Maybe the'll just use him as a trade chip again. Doumit is a bit injury bitten too isn't he?

Woudln't surprise me to see them move Doumit? Neil Huntington isn't against "shaking" things up. As we have seen. (McLouth/Morgan/LaRoche/Snell) I still think they make Clement a 1B, Pearce hasn't shown anything since his recall. Also wasn't dominating AAA either. Sure Jones is on fire now, but I doubt its going to last. He will ride out the season, but probably wont start next year. So he will fill his role that being a bench player. SOLID one at that.

BUCCO LINEUP 2010?

CF - McCutchen
2B - Young Jr. (stil think they get him from the Rockies, for Grabow)
LF - Milledge
C - Doumit
1B - Clement
RF - Moss/D.Young
3B - LaRoche
SS - Cedeno/Cruz
