Rays Jackson To Mariners?

According to the St. Petersburg Times, the Jackson to Mariners rumor is still brewing. My take on it is that the Mariners and Rays had talks before the Silva signing about possibly sending a lefty reliever to the Rays for Jackson, who was 5-15 with a 5.76 ERA and 128 K last season. Jackson, 24, was regarded as one of the top Dodgers prospects back in 2003, but has struggled since making it to the MLB. Nonetheless, the Mariners have several lefty relievers and could afford to lose one. Personally, I think this deal died after the Silva signing, so I doubt that it will happen.

Seattle prefers Snell: The Mariners approached the Pirates about Ian Snell, but quickly backed off when they asked for Adam Jones in return.
