Seattle Mariners Podcast: Diamondbacks Rebuild, Finding Payroll Flexibility
Did you guys know we have a podcast? Well, good news. We do! We cover all things Seattle Mariners and even, on occasion, talk about the Seattle sports scene on the whole!
Today, the Sodo Mojo Podcast, Ty Gonzalez and Colby Patnode dive into the recent news that the Arizona Diamondbacks are looking to trade major pieces off of their MLB roster. Can the Mariners snag some useful pieces from the wreckage?
We dig into names like Zack Greinke, Robbie Ray, and Paul Goldschmidt. The discussion was inspired by our recent piece on the subject, which you can read by clicking here. The guys kick around a few names and try to find something of value Jerry Dipoto can actually afford.
In addition, we update the Mariners payroll situation. After digging into the arbitration figures, Jerry Dipoto may not have as much money as we originally thought. In a crucial off-season, can Dipoto get creative and find money by moving guys off the 25 man roster? We try to put on our thinking caps and come up with some money saving solutions.
Can they trade Dee Gordon or Mike Leake for something to help them in 2019? Or will they be forced to shop off the bargain rack thanks to their self-imposed salary cap?
