Seattle Mariners Should Trade For the Chicago Cubs Nick Madrigal
Trading Chris Flexen After a Stong Season
I know that trading some of our favorite players may not be what people want, but it fixes a hole in the lineup while adding to the youth of the team. Chris Flexen might be that guy who we will see if a different jersey next season.
Flexen was a bit of a steal for the Mariners after pitching in Korea for a year. He was solid this season, but pitching is one thing that the Mariners are not lacking in their minor league system. Some of our minor league studs are George Kirby, Emerson Hancock, Brandon Williamson, Levi Stoudt, and Matt Brash.
All of them were in AA Arkansas and all had good years and all who could make the big show at some point this coming season. With all the money the Mariners have to spend, they could also get a few free agents while the youngsters come up as and get their feet wet.
The Cubs are in need of some pitching and would welcome Chris Flexen, a 26-year-old pitcher who had 3.61 ERA and is under team control till 2027. Likewise, the Mariners need a second baseman and a 24-year-old who is under team control till 2027. It is a win-win scenario for both teams in terms of getting a player that fills a need of both teams.
