Tom Gage, of the Detroit News, reports the Seattle Mariners have turned their attention to free agent C Ivan Rodriguez (Marlins). "We have an interest in him on a short-term basis," said Mariners general manager Bill Bavasi. Jim Street, Seattle's MLB.com reporter, wrote that the first call Bavasi made after getting the $9.5 million "windfall" from CL Kazuhiro Sasaki returning to Japan was to Scott Boras, Rodriguez's agent. "We have to see what kind of deals he has out there and how late we are (in the bidding)," Bavasi said. "If he's gone down the road a long ways with a club or two, we are going to be at a disadvantage."
