M's close to signing Silva?

So, remember Carlos Silva? The guy mentioned the past few months (along with Kyle Lohse) as the most likely free agent pitcher to get an absurd contract?

Ken Rosenthal says he's close to a deal with the Mariners:

Carlos Silva, perhaps the top starting pitcher remaining on the free-agent market, does not figure to be available much longer.

The Mariners are in serious negotiations with Silva on a contract that would be worth at least $44 million over four years, according to major-league sources.

You can see Silva's stats here. Groundball finesse pitcher who seems to be the new Bob Tewksbury.

Dave Cameron thinks the M's should stay away.

And Jeff Sullivan appears to be unhappy.
