Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik jumps on the line with Jim, Dave and Shannon Drayer. He says this move - trading Jason Vargas for Kendrys Morales - will push Justin Smoak and it's up to him to get to the next level. Morales is a good offensive addition to the roster. He says the Mariners made a strong offer to Josh Hamilton and he had legitimate interest in coming to Seattle, but without a word, just went and took the Los Angeles offer.
Shannon Drayer hangs in with the guys and breaks down what Jack Zduriencik had to say. She tells Jim and Dave what this move does for the offense and what risks it might pose.
How will the Mariners supplement their pitching staff now that Jason Vargas is gone? When will the big three make it to Seattle? Shannon discusses with Jim and Dave.
