The Seattle Mariners haven't stopped talking to other teams just because the winter meetings ended, and the world of baseball continues on a frantic pace.
Not much Mariners news today, but here's a little catch up work on a handful of former Mariners:
* The Phillies are trying to bring Jamie Moyer back and the Brewers are courting the 46-year-old, who is asking for a multi-year deal – and, as always, acting as his own agent.
* Outfielder Mike Cameron is under a one-year, $10 million contract with Milwaukee, which is on the verge of trading him to the New York Yankees for outfielder Melky Cabrera.

* Veteran left-hander and two-time former Mariner Arthur Rhodes signed a two-year, $4 million deal with Cincinnati.
* The Tigers resigned utility infielder Ramon Santiago for $650,000. If the name sounds familiar, it should – Santiago was traded to Seattle by Detroit in the Carlos Guillen trade. When that didn't work out here, Santiago went back to Detroit and has been a valuable bench player since.
* Now that A.J. Burnett has signed with the Yankees, the next huge pitching contract likely will go to former Mariner Derek Lowe. Lowe, 36 now, is looking for a five-year, $80 million deal. Insane, yes – but he may get it.
