Are you kidding me?
The Washburn trade is looking very unlikely at this point. The Mariners are out of their minds with what they want. I think Washburn would be an excellent addition and would stabilize the rotation. However, he`s hardly worth the type of prospect the Mariners have. They still have a few hours top come to their senses. However, I think its pretty unlikely. Instead I would reccomend trying to get Paul Byrd. Its to bad the Mariner's GM screwed this thing up. Washburn could still pass through waivers. However, by that time it may be to late for him to make a difference. We also may have found another pitcher.
