Jack Zduriencik knew the questions would be coming about his long relationship with slugger Prince Fielder and the synergy of Fielder being a free agent and the Seattle Mariners needing an influx of power. But Zduriencik (in photo) wouldn’t bite on Tuesday, carefully dancing around the question of how fervently the Mariners will pursue the first baseman whom Zduriencik drafted while with the Brewers’ organization. “I don’t think it’s in our best interest to do that,” Zduriencik said Tuesday. Baseball’s winter meetings get started Monday in Dallas. Zduriencik said his priorities remain adding a bat to the lineup, getting a left-hander for the bullpen and trying to find a veteran starter for a young rotation. – Associated Press
