Yesterday Rob Neyer wondered whether the Mariners — who have had what most agree to be the most successful offseason of anyone — have added too many good players:
I’m wondering if maybe it’s time for Jack Zduriencik to call off his little off-season shopping spree.
Sure, he’s picked up Cliff Lee and Chone Figgins and Eric Byrnes and now Ryan Garko on the cheap. But for the life of me I can’t figure
out where everyone’s going to play. I mean, I think I wrote about the
Mariners’ roster logjam before Byrnes and Garko came aboard.
Rob admits that too many good players may be a good problem to have, but he’s concerned that there won’t be enough playing time for them all, especially if the team feels obligated to give an ineffective Ken Griffey his plate appearances.
In that case he had better not read Jon Paul Morosi’s tweets relaying that the Mariners may still try to bring in Orlando Hudson.
