Baseball? What’s that? A day before pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training, Seattle Mariners General Manager Jack Zduriencik said there was still time for the team to make a major roster addition. “There’s probably a window to do something,” he said.

We weren’t hoping so much for a window as we were a door for Zduriencik and Mariner CEO Howard Lincoln to walk out of.
