Seattle Mariners rumors: Mariners to trade for David Price, sign Nelson Cruz?

Seattle Mariners rumors suggest the team will trade for David Price and sign Nelson Cruz soon. These Mariners rumors come from ESPN, where an article from late Sunday (Dec. 15) has predicted that the team will acquire both players this offseason. Writer David Schoenfield made the bold predictions that the team isn't even close to stopping player additions yet.

Citing the pressure to surround Robinson Cano with talent right now, he also feels that general manager Jack Zduriencik will go back on his statement about not dealing Taijuan Walker. In the predicted trade to acquire Price from the Tampa Bay Rays, his prediction is that Walker will be the centerpiece of the deal. That might not sit well with fans unless Price performs extremely well right out of the gate.

As for signing Cruz, the latest prediction is that he will get a three-year deal from the team. It was previously reported on Examiner that he turned down a five-year, $75 million deal to come to the Pacific Northwest. If that is actually true, it raises some important questions about why he would suddenly take a three-year deal. The two conclusions are that he would either not do it or would be getting a hefty raise when it comes to his annual salary.

It's important to realize that these latest Seattle Mariners rumors have stemmed from ESPN making predictions and not from actual facts in the marketplace. There is a chance that it could go exactly like this and that the Opening Day roster could include David Price and Nelson Cruz, but the front office has been pretty quiet on the negotiations for the two star players.
