Kei Igawa to Mariners?

The Seattle Times is reporting that the Mariners are interested in Kei Igawa.

Kenji Johjima and Ichiro both expressed pleasant surprise in the clubhouse after overhearing a TV report about the Mariners' rumored trade interest in Yankees pitcher Kei Igawa, who is also Japanese.

I`d like to see him dealt but we better get something decent back. Igawa doesn't have a huge contract that needs to be dumped on someone. Igawa also gets a decent amount of strikeouts. He needs to improve his control. He has a whole new culture to adjust to and I think he`ll be a lot better next year. If you can get a solid middle reliever for him then its a great deal but it isn't addition by subtraction.
