Seattle has a secret (Hot Stove News)

The Seattle Mariners have made an offer to a free agent player.

They won't say who it is, except that it's not Griffey. (Though they have talked to Griffey's agent.)

They also admit that it's a position player, not a pitcher, which leads Matt Snyder to speculate that it might be Adam Dunn. However, he thinks Dunn will be too expensive for the Bedard-depleted Mariners organization. His best guess? Jerry Hairston, Jr.

He's sure to be cheap, worked hard all season for the Reds, and has good versatility. At 33, he's not too old to be productive, yet he's old enough to accept a two year contract this early in the process, especially considering his career path and numbers. He's not going to cost them any draft choices, either, so this would be a good fit.

Yeah, yeah, not exactly earth-shattering. But hey, I figured we needed a fresh hot stove thread, with all the arb decisions being announced tonight.

Though not the Reds yet. I guess the beat reporters haven't tortured the info out of Jocketty yet. FWIW, C. Trent thinks Hairston, Lincoln and Weathers will be offered arbitration. Along with Encarnacion and maybe Majewski.
