The Tacoma News Tribune’s Corey Brock reports the Seattle Mariners are about to sign free agent P Jarrod Washburn to a 4 year deal worth somewhere between $36 and $38 million.

Chris Washburn, however, remains unsigned by any big league club.

Though the Angels have now lost Paul Byrd and Jarrod Washburn this off-season, Sidney Ponson is very available. Hopefully not so available in prison, but whenever he gets out.

The Florida Marlins’ fire sale has now extended all the way to reliever Ron Villone, traded today to the New York Yankees in exchange for pitcher Ben Julianel.
