The Last Word

Ellsbury and Choo would be a great asset to the Mariners. Defensively, each would bring strong fielding abilities to center field and make a very strong lineup. Offensively however, there are some questions that need to be answered. They are each able to get on base as leadoff hitters, but the Mariners could prove unable to score any runs after that.

The M’s are going to need to step up in the remainder of the order to bring in a leadoff guy, no matter who it is.

There could be some big changes coming, so hopefully the rest of the team can rally around any new guys and get out of the basement.

    They will never sign Ellsbury. Too much money.

      That’s why Matt Joyce might be a backup option to acquire via trade w/ David Price.

    Matt Joyce would be another option if the Seattle Mariners can package pitchers James Paxton & Danny Hultzen, Justin Smoak, catcher John Hicks, and a player to be named or international slots to the Tampa Bay Rays for Matt Joyce & pitcher David Price. Paxton and/or Hultzen can be ready to jump into the middle of the Rays starting rotation. Smoak could easily replace Loney at first base. Hicks is the future catcher the Rays can replace if Gimenez or Lobaton becomes a free agent after 2014 or 2015 season. David Price as a number two starting pitcher w/ the ace King Felix Hernandez, Iwakuma the third starting pitcher, Ubaldo Jimenez as number four starting pitcher via free agency, and Erasmo Ramirez to round out the starting pitching rotation.
