Maybe I'm missing something, but my knee jerk reaction is the Mariners have overpayed for the guy they saw on October 27, 2006.
This has already been hashed out to a decent degree here
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
