MLB Trade Rumors: Mariners Unlikely To Trade Felix Hernandez

The Seattle Mariners have not been linked to much in the way of trade talk this month -- outside of the Ichiro trade, of course -- but there are some who still believe Felix Hernandez could be dealt. While there is no doubt teams around baseball would give a king's ransom (pun!) for Hernandez, trading their ace pitcher would be an incredibly tough sell to the fan base.

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, it looks like there won't be any blockbuster deals coming out of Seattle before the July 31 deadline.

As is always the case this time of year, we'll keep an eye on the trade rumors. The M's might make a small deal or two, but as of right now it looks like King Felix will stay in Seattle for the foreseeable future.

Mariners fans should head over to Lookout Landing for continued updates.


Mariners Trade Rumors: Multiple Teams Sniffing Around Vargas

After an alright showing last night, speculation is still being fueled that Jason Vargas could be the second pitcher to leave in consecutive seasons after Doug Fister was traded to the Detroit Tigers last trade deadline.

Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe reported earlier this week that the Orioles, Blue Jays, Pirates, Cardinals, and Tigers have all expressed interest in Vargas.

Vargas is currently 9-7 with a 4.09 ERA in 20 starts, although his ERA is quite a bit higher away from the cozy confines of Safeco Field. Vargas also leads the league in home runs allowed at 25, but he is a proven innings eater that can put up quality numbers at the end of the rotation of a contending team.

For all Seattle Mariners coverage head to Lookout Landing for the depressing low down. Stay glued to this storystream for any and all Mariners trade news to hit the streets.
