    [QUOTE]I don't think Youk would interest Seattle, but if Lowrie keeps hitting the way he is, we might be able to trade Pedroia.  Lowrie is really only suited to second base.  Pedroia is locked up through 2014 at $6 - 10M per.  He's only 27, a former MVP and a great club-house guy.

    The Seattle Mariners have one of the top hitting prospects in baseball in secondbaseman Dustin Ackley, who is expected to be called up this year.

    The Red Sox probably do not have the pieces to make a credible offer for Felix Hernandez.

    Hi Accland,

    I see your point but disagree, but that's cause I'm a huge Youk fan. On his side, some players last longer into late age and some like Jimmy Foxx decline early, but I guess overall I would agree with your point. I just see Youk as a team leader, and a veteran presence, but he could supply good trade value packaged with some others for Fernandez. But how willing is Seattle to trade an ace and centerpiece of their future.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Here's a trade idea that could actually work : Ackley is a converted 2B - many scouts project him to a corner OF position.  But I agree, the M's will need a potential ace in return - the best the Sox can do is Ranaudo, who is too far away to be worth the risk.

    The Mariners have their own lefthanded version of Anthony Ranaudo, the 39th pick in the 2010 draft, in James Paxton, the 37th pick in the 2009 draft*. Ranaudo at LSU and Paxton at Kentucky were SEC rivals. Ranaudo once beat Paxton in a 2009 game that saw Ranaudo strike out 13 while Paxton struck out 14:

    There would be nothing wrong with the Mariners stockpiling pitching prospects, but the Red Sox probably lack the pieces to make a serious bid for Felix Hernandez.

    * Paxton did not sign after the Toronto Blue Jays took him in the 2009 draft but signed with Seattle after the Mariners took him in the fourth round of the 2010 draft.

    Youk, Dice, Lowrie wont do it

    they would want Ells, and/or Bard too

    that would be too high a price for me

    Posted by georom4[/QUOTE]I wouldn't give up Youk and Lowrie in the same deal. One of them would need to start at 3rd.
