The final week before the July 31st trading deadline, and there are probably 20 or more scouts at U.S. Celluar Field tonight - though they may only be here to watch one of the two teams playing.
The Seattle Mariners lineup is the ususal group. If you were a scout from another team - any team - which Mariners player would you want to see? Is there anyone you'd recommend acquiring other than those you'd have no chance of getting.
Ichiro? Felix? Michael Saunders?
Go ahead, speculate all you want, but rememer - it's not who you want to trade, it's which players can you genuinely interest another team in? Let's make a deal!

- Ichiro Suzuki, RF
- Chone Figgins, 2B
- Franklin Gutierrez, CF
- Jose Lopez, 3B
- Casey Kotchman, 1B
