Welcome to week three of the Mariners market, where I will be discussing how the Mariners have preformed this past week, who’s stock is rising, as well as who’s stock is falling. And at the end, I will discuss one trade that I would like to see the Mariners make between either their affiliates, or another organization.
Well, week three of the Mariners Market brought the same thing that the past 50 games have brought, up and down baseball with right around .500 baseball. The M’s went 4-3 this week, starting off the week by ending their road trip with a very nice three game sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays. They then came home and gave those games right back by losing three of four to the Cleveland Indians. The Mariners came into this week seven games back of the Houston Astros, sitting in third place in the AL West. This week they are finding themselves 6½ games back, but now stand in fourth place as the Texas Rangers have jumped them.
But, without further ado, the Mariners Market is all about individual performances,I’ll look into who’s been hot for the Mariners in the past week, and who has not. Also, make sure to check out the proposed trade at the end, it includes a very familiar name!
Be sure to cast your vote on the final slide regarding if you think the M’s should make that trade, I’m very interested!
