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. 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.

    We had him once and frankly is there really a good reason to get him back. His numbers are COLORADO inflated and he will not be any sort of answer for this team behind the dish. I have supported JACKIE-Z on everything he has done, but he is on his own on this one!

    Well, next year is over before it starts.. see you in 2012, there’s still hope for that year.

    Jackie-Z is quickly losing my faith and money.. as I won’t be purchasing any tickets this year. Good luck though!

  3. The way this team is looking, even with a scorecard we won’t know the players.

  4. This makes no sense. We’re rebuilding & Olivo is not the catcher of the future. Let Moore & RJ get all the playing time; we’re not going to win this year anyways.

  5. Sniff, sniff, what’s that smell? Oh yeah…desperation.

    What? Ben Davis wasn’t available?
