According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, the Mariners have agreed to a seven-year, $175 million contract with ace Felix Hernandez. Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik has repeatedly shot down speculation that the Mariners might try to trade their ace, and making Hernandez the highest-paid pitcher in baseball history is a pretty convincing way for Zduriencik to put his money where his mouth is.

So, to answer the question one last time: No, I do not think the Yankees are going to be able to trade for Felix Hernandez.

And, no, I don’t really believe this is the last time I’ll have to answer that question.
