I know I speak for many Mariners fans when I say, “Why would we overpay for Cruz?” I guess the only reasonable response is if they don’t overpay for Cruz.
I would prefer we not sign him at all. We already have a bunch of outfielders/designated hitters. Why do we want Cruz?
I’m sure that’s not the case and I actually don’t want the Mariners to empty the cupboards for a two-year rental. But that’s the only conclusion I can think of that at least kind of makes sense.
We will have more on this developing story as it breaks.
