As far as the big names go, the focus of the second half of the Winter Meetings was definitely on Jason Bay and Roy Halladay. In fact, no one really had anything on Matt Holliday or John Lackey yesterday or most of Wednesday. As of this morning, however, FOX’s Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Seattle Mariners are looking at Lackey.
This is a bit surprising given that it had previously been reported that they were looking more at “high-upside, medium-risk” pitchers like Rich Harden and maybe even Ben Sheets, each of whom would command less money than Lackey (and in fact, Harden did command quite a reasonable contract).
Not that such an approach has been discarded. Indeed, Morosi spends more time in his report talking about the possibility of a Jarrod Washburn return to Seattle than he does on Lackey. Though I suppose Washburn is more of a “meh-upside, medium risk” type than a “high-upside, medium risk” type.
