There have been rumors of Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista being traded this offseason, and the Seattle Mariners are one team that makes sense because they have the arms to get a deal done, and they need power. However, sources have said there have been zero conversations concerning a potential trade between the two clubs.
FANTASY TIP: Well, that rumor has been put to rest, at least for now. Fantasy owners in keeper formats breathe a sigh of relief, as Safeco Field is not exactly a power hitter's paradise.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) is already pushing to return to the team in 2014, and he indicated that the team would be his first choice over any of the other 31 clubs. "Listed, there is no place in the (NFL) that I'd rather be than right here at 1925 Giants Drive," Jacobs said Tuesday, Dec. 10, after landing on season-ending Injured Reserve. "Nowhere. We could've went 0-16 and I would be happy and smiling in this locker room because I'm a Giant at heart, I love the organization, I love the fans, I love that 'ny'. So there's not a better place for me. I'd rather be here than go somewhere and be undefeated. There is where I belong."
