Mariners pursuing Ben Sheets after securing Felix Hernandez

The Mariners have already traded for Cliff Lee, and extended their young ace Felix Hernandez. Their sights are now set on Ben Sheets, an extremely injury-prone but incredibly talented pitcher who spent 2009 recovering from elbow surgery.

If Sheets goes to Seattle and somehow manages to stay healthy, something he hasn't been able to do since 2004, the Mariners would have the best trio of starters in all of baseball. Add that to the acquisition of Chone Figgins at the top of their lineup, and this could be the most exciting team in baseball.
