The Mariners have been working very hard to improve their pitching since they failed to finish the season strong and push into the playoffs. Bill Bavasi has mentioned Johan Santana, Erik Bedard, and Dan Haren as possible targets, and don't be surprised if they land one. Although they do not have the best prospects, they could package a trade around outfield prospect Adam Jones, and pitching prospect Brandon Morrow. I don't know how much Bedard would help, just because the Angels have improved so much, but it would be an addition nonetheless.
Rays Close In On Floyd: The Rays are closing in on a contract with Cliff Floyd. Not a bad signing, because he did hit well in Chicago. Floyd will probably platoon with Gomes at DH.
