Geoff Baker talked with Seattle Mariners team president Chuck Armstrong:

“I went home Thursday night, thinking we had a deal with the Yankees,” Armstrong said. “Pending an exchange of the physical information of the players involved. The next morning, when we got into the details of the physicals of the players involved, one of the players that was coming to us from the Yankees was disabled, and based upon the best medical information that our team medical director, Edward Khalfayan, had, he recommended that we not proceed. Jack (Zduriencik) and his people then spent some time with the Yankees trying to come up with an alternative player, or players, to replace that player. Or even players to be named later. If we could come up with that. In the meantime, other clubs became involved. The White Sox, Minnesota and Texas to name a few.”

So, Larry Stone heard correctly. Same for Ken Rosenthal. And, if you think Seattle asked for Gordon Beckham you are correct!

UPDATE: Tim Brown (Yahoo) says Cliff Lee might be a Kenny Williams target again in the off-season. Other possible Kenny Williams targets: Prince Fielder, Rafael Soriano, Matt Kemp.
