mlb news. mariners and some trade talk

The Seattle Mariners designated LF Wladimir Balentien for assignment.
Hard to believe they are giving up on this 25 year old who projects to hit for power and plays solid defense. Some team will pick him up on the cheap. He can be of great use to the Padres.

Also of importance but less: Josh Anderson was designated yesterday. Speedy lead off hitter type. Can actually be useful for a team that needs speed on its 40 man roster for the end of the season/september.

If I am the Phillies, I build a package around JA Happ for Roy Halladay. Even the Phillies didn’t expect him to pitch like this, nor do they expect him to next year.

If the Reds acquire Scott Rolen as expected then expect them to trade Francisco Cordero and/or one of their starters.
