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.

Now My part Two of fixing the Seattle. I would Sign A.J. Burnett,Adam Dunn,Joe Crede, Rafeal Furcal And Jason Giambi to switch from 1st base/DH With Griffey So my Line up and rotation would look like This:
2.Adam Lind RF
3.Joe Crede 3RD
6.Adam Dunn LF
8.Omar Vizquel SS
