Sele was one of baseball's most overpaid players last year ($8.6 mil for a 5.05 ERA and 132 innings) and has seen his numbers decline steadily since leaving Seattle in 2001. Still, as a non-roster envitee, he would be very low-risk for the Mariners. It might even be possible (though unlikely) for him to regain some of his old form. In addition, he'd be a good story for the fans in spring training (think: Norm Charlton). And it's great to see the club giving a former Coug another shot.
