It was a good trade for the Mariners in general.Mariners now have a committed salary of $38M in 2021, down from $146M this coming year. With some good decisions in the free agent market (lol) and if most of the prospects turn out, maybe 2021 is the start of something.
I am convincing myself more and more that this trade was both good and necessary.
Ehh not sure I'd want to pay a premium for him.
50-60 million probably. Already spent 25 mil.
Don't even need to trade Wheeler. Sign AJ Pollock.Yeah, I was "ok "with trading Syndergaard before the Cano/Diaz trade.But not now. Keep your best players for the next 2 years. MAYBE Trade Wheeler if someone wants to dish a good OF for him.
I'm fine with the trade but it requires them to go balls deep and I don't know if they will do it. They need to sign Grandal and another top free agent at the very least. Half assing and acting as if the trade alone will make them an awesome team would be a worst case scenario.
Still need Mcneil and Alonso to be for real and Cespedes to not be dead for the team to be good but I like the boldness.
No trade clauses are a huge mistake because they don’t have leverage
