M's Looking for Big Bench Bat 

The Boston Globe reports that the Mariners beat the Red Sox offer ($1.25M vs. <$1M) for Ellis Burks, but he still chose the Red Sox.

Mark Guthrie has signed with the Pirates, so that just leaves Ron Villone out there, and there are rumors of the Mets and Padres being willing to give him a rotation slot.

So the M's are still looking for that big bat, and that's encouraging. Watch for rumors around Travis Lee, Troy O'Leary, Raul Mondesi or Andres Gallaraga soon.
