Here’s my updated story for the website
UPDATE: Sorry about the delay, we were on the live chat. Thanks to all joined. I said on there, that a Mariners source confirmed that the Olivo deal is done, pending a physical.
Well, I posed the question yesterday: Would the Mariners really give Miguel Olivo a 2-year contract?
Well, the answer is apparently, YES.
Foxsports.com Jon Paul Morosi is reporting that the Mariners and Olivo have agreed to a 2-year, $7 million contract.
Earlier in the day, GM Jack Zduriencik said the team was having “in-depth dialogues” with a free agent catcher. Apparently, that catcher is Olivo.
I’m going to do the live chat, so feel free to jump on and offer your thoughts. And then I will try and post more.
