CHICAGO - No question that the Red Sox coveted righthander Felix Hernandez enough at the trading deadline to offer the farm for him, but while there has been talk that King Felix could be back on the market if he's not signed long-term this offseason, Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik didn't sound like a man who was going to make that happen.

"He's one of the best guys in the game. He's an integral part of our team and what we're doing here (Seattle)," Zduriencik said.

Zduriencik wouldn't comment on how many teams have already called and he said, "I can't control clubs calling."

At the moment, however, Octagon, the firm which represents Hernandez, has not received a contract proposal from the Mariners but have been told one is on the way.
