    SEATTLE -- Chone Figgins was expected to give the Seattle Mariners a spark when he signed a $36 million, four-year contract with them in December 2009. Instead, he was an expensive burden in three lackluster seasons. The Mariners finally conceded the deal didn't work, designating Figgins for assignment Tuesday night. Cutting ties with Figgins was one of a number of moves the Mariners made to get their 40-man roster set. The Mariners also designated outfielder Scott Cousins, who was claimed off waivers from Toronto on Nov. 6. But it was the decision to finally end Figgins' tenure that was most costly.
