The Mariners are calling the Dodgers to, I dunno, ask how their day has been

From Buster Olney’s column today:

The Seattle Mariners have called the Los Angeles Dodgers repeatedly about Andre Ethier, and while the Dodgers’ intention is to open the season with him as their right fielder, they have told other teams all winter that they’re always willing to listen to offers. As of now, the Mariners haven’t been moved to present any, sources say.

If they’re not making offers, what are they saying on those calls?

I really don’t understand trade rumors sometimes.
