Mariners reportedly agree to seven-year deal with Felix Hernandez

Tweet [1]

According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, the Mariners have agreed to a seven-year, $175 million contract with ace Felix Hernandez. [2]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.
