GM For A Day:Seattle Mariners Part 1

I would totally dismantle this Team. They are a good three or four years away from contending so its time to rebuild. First thing I would do is Hire Joey Cora as the manager because He has the kind of passion i like in a person.Then i would Package Adrian Beltre and Jarrod Washburn together . I would try to get atleast 1 MLB Ready prospect at either 1st base,Left Field, or 2nd base and short stop. and two middle level prospects a young Starting pitcher would be accpetable and a promising Double A prospect. Then i would Trade Yuniesky Betancourt For a player with some pop in his bat. Anyone would work Betancourt is a flop in m mind.Then i would sign  short stop to fill in like a Omar Vizquel or an Alex cora just to fill in for a couple of years until Carlos Triunfel Is primed and ready to go. I would sign Ken Griffey i know thats what everyone wants i think its smart from both Business side that he will be a solid run producer in safeco in the middle of a horried lineup.Plus Reuniting him with one of his old Friends Joey Cora the could do wonders to the locker room.I last thing I would do is Trade ichiro.I would trade him to toronto For Travis Snider OF one of the mos gifted hitters around,Kevin Ahrens 3B,Adam Lind OF,Brett Cecil LHP,John Tosilano 2nd.
