Mariners declined to offer arbitration to OF Mike Cameron, LHP Arthur Rhodes, OF John Mabry, INF Mark McLemore and SS Rey Sanchez.
Believe it or not, Pat Borders was offered arbitration. He'll probably be re-signed to a minor league deal before long. With Cameron out of the picture, the Mariners will shift Randy Winn to center field next season and use Raul Ibanez in left. They'll be in the market for a quality lefty reliever to replace Rhodes.
