The other day, we wrote about how Trevor Story should be the top option for the Mariners. They already got their pitcher in Robbie Ray, and Trevor Story is now their number one target that they should go for.
Yeah, I know that there is a worry about Story and his home vs road splits. I understand that argument. But the article about Story explains it in a way that I haven’t heard before. It’s also an incredible explanation and makes a lot of sense. Heck, I remember hearing about the Magnus Effect back in 1998 when they had the Home Run Derby there. it wasn’t until I read the Story article that I attached them together though.
Story has an incredible bat, and it’s something that the Mariners definitely need. They had an awful offense last year, and Story could be one more step in righting that ship. Frazier was one, Story would be a bigger one, and they could make one more to be in a great position for the future.
.270/.340/.520. 25-30 HR. 15-20 SB. 35 2B. A great arm and pretty darn good defense. Yeah, give me that all day. It’s what Story provides, and could provide a needed boost to the Mariners. Think of what the lineup could look like.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I love that. It’s going to take something similar to what Robbie Ray got per season, but Story is worth it, and the team could commit to a deal like that while still staying below the league average in payroll. 6-132, make it happen.
