Default Chone Figgins DFA'ed by Mariners

Seattle is looking at eating the final year of his contract at $8M.

If KW was still GM I'm sure the Sox would have interest, but who knows now.

KW always gets his man!
He has nothing else to give so I hope the Sox stay away.

Third base problem is over.
Batting in the second position for the White Sox, number 2, the second baseman Nelson Fox.

Mariners didn't use the last two days they had available to them to try to find a landing spot for Figgins. No team was going to trade for Figgins, who still has a year, and $8.5 million, left on his contract.

Figgins is free to sign with any team, which will only have to pay him the minimum salary. He'll find work, most likely on a non-roster basis with a spring-training invite. Possibly to the Rays.

I am fairly certain he is washed up but am I the only person that wouldn't mind taking a flyer on him? If he would accept a minor league contract and invitation to spring training or some sort of similar deal to what we gave Andruw Jones I wouldn't be horribly opposed.

Go Sox!!!
