    Mariners scouting Weathers/Lohse?

    from MLB trade rumors (not exactly a reliable source but they're just rumors, so whatever)

    An MLBTR reader had good seats at last night's Reds game, and he observed about eight scouts watching. Specifically, he saw a Seattle Mariners scout. Apparently the scout got pretty active when David Weathers took the hill. This is reasonable; the Ms are known to be looking for bullpen help.

    Weathers picked up a two-inning save last night. He's having a surprisingly strong year, with some of the best control of his career. His contract runs through 2008, when he will make $2.75MM. However, Will Carroll wrote yesterday that the Reds want to keep Weathers and trade Todd Coffey instead.

    Another reason eight scouts might have been watching last night's Reds-Brewers contest: Kyle Lohse started. He wasn't too bad, allowing two runs (one earned) in 5.2 innings. The Mariners seem to be monitoring quite a few starters so it wouldn't surprise me if they had an eye on Lohse.
    So any suggestions on a return for Weathers/Lohse from the M's?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    The Ms have zero need for bullpen help. If they traded for Weathers, it would be a bit of a shocker to me.
    "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
