Welcome to another week 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. At the end of the article, I will discuss one trade that I would like to see the Mariners make between either their affiliates, or another organization.
Well, this week brought the same frustration and anger that the whole season has brought. The M’s played .500 ball going 3-3 in the past week. They took two of three from the Cleveland Indians, but faltered in their biggest series to date by losing two of three to the Houston Astros. The Mariners exit this week 7 ½ games back of the Houston Astros, sitting in fourth place in the AL West, trailing the Astros, Angels, and Rangers.
But, without further ado, the Mariners Market is all about individual performances. Let’s take a look at who’s been hot for the Mariners in the past week, and who has not, as well as a move that I plead for Jack Z to make!
