Update on Bloomquist

Port Orchard native Willie Bloomquist told Larry LaRue of the Tacoma News Tribune that he’s talked with teams, but the free-agent infielder who has spent his entire career with the Mariners hasn’t had any offers yet. Here’s the story.

And in case you missed it, here’s a Q&A that I wrote about Bloomquist that appeared in our Sunday editions.

I still think the Diamondbacks, Cubs and Nationals are likely spots for Willie to land. Why? Because Bob Melvin manages the D’backs, Lou Piniella manages the Cubs, and Jim Riggleman is now employed by the Nationals. All three managed Bloomquist and appreciate what he brings to the table.
