    If we get Cano, Price will be a great idea for SP update(King, Price, Kuma....WOW). But it's no sense to give up Walker for Price. He is 10M+ player already and only have 2 more arb left. Paxton+Ackley/Franky should be the package for Price.

    This would make no sense to trade Walker. It isn't like Price is the missing piece to make the M's better. It might make them a couple games better over the next two years until Price goes to the Yankees or Dodgers. Yes it is taking a risk that Walker will be as good as people think he will be but he is very cheap and under team control for a long time. The M's need these couple years to get to where they can compete.

    [Sorry, hit Submit too soon and left off the last few words, totally changing the meaning! Since there's no erase or edit function, here's the full comment.]A bird in the hand.... Walker is an unproven commodity with considerable upside... but just as much downside. There have been numerous pitchers who were standouts in AAA and then turned into quad-A's in the show, long relievers and back-of-the-rotation innings-eaters and such. Obviously any real evaluation of this trade means considering Price's current contract, years under contract, and re-signability, but as a straightforward arm-for-arm swap, no way would I not jump at this trade.

    Given the Mariner history in trading potential for actual I would think managment would have learned. NOne of the young, unproven talent should be traded. Giving away two or three for one old timer, or even 'mid timer' isn't going to win a penant--it takes a team and right now there is the potential to actually, once again, have a 'team'.
