2013 Mariners lineup:
Wow, this is a dumb signing for a well-regarded GM.
Bringing back a fan favorite(is he?) at the end of his career for a back-up roll on a non-contender for little money makes fine sense to me.
The M's under Z have drafted well and have generally traded well, except for batsp. Figgins was an unforeseeable mistake. Most of the bad moves have been little ones: Griffey, Olivo, Peguero, Liddi in the OF, etc.
Doesn't seem like they handled the Cliff Lee trades very well. Seems foolish of them to have acquired him in the first place, and it doesn't seam like they got a great haul for him once they cut bait. He also dealt a very useful pitcher in Doug Fister for basically nothing.
Figgins was an unforeseeable mistake.
Because speed, defense, and OBP are generally undervalued?
Oh goody, we can add to this list of funny animated GIFs of Raul Ibanez playing the outfield for the Seattle Mariners.
There are still people who regard Jack Z well?
Figgins was no more than an averageish utility defensive player in his 20s. He had two big seasons at ages 29 and 31 where his BABIP spiked (.393 and .356 respectively). He was a useful complementary piece, and Zduriencik paid him $36M for his age 32-35 seasons.
