Sodo Mojo Podcast Episode 12: Let’s Make a Deal (or Not?)
It is officially MLB half way point, and now is a great time to take stock in the 2017 season. On Episode 12, Will, Riley and Colby do just that. Where are the Mariners going? We discuss on Episode 12 of the Sodo Mojo Podcast!
On this episode of the Sodo Mojo Podcast, we talk about the dissapointing lead up to the All-Star break. The Mariners have lost 10 of their last 14 games and find themselves 4 games under .500. The team is 4 1/2 games back of the Wild Card with 6 teams to pass.So where do we think the Mariners are? What should they do at the deadline? Buy, Sell, or Hold?
Felix Hernandez had an encouraging start on Sunday. What adjustments did we see? Is this the new King Felix? How important is velocity to him? What do the Mariners need to get from Hernandez to get back into the race?

Finally, we end with a game of Deal or No Deal ( minus Howie Mandel). Will and Riley respond to 5 potential trades from Colby. Are they willing to sell Nelson Cruz? What would it take? Nick Vincent is a better trade piece than most thought. Did we find a deal we cant say no to?
Some of the deals offered are:
Vincent to Tampa Bay Rays for prospect Jake Bauers
Jarrod Dyson to St. Louis Cardinals for Connor Jones and Zac Gallen
And Danny Valenica to the Arizona Diamondbacks for reliever Jimmy Sherfy
Plus 2 other deals, including an offer for Nelson Cruz. We finish the show by taking a trip to make believe land where the Atlanta Braves have an interesting offer for Kyle Seager. Do we approve?
