Now that we're more than 70 games into the 2024 season, it seems pretty clear that the Mariners have a strong hold over the AL West. They have a 9-game lead over the second-place Rangers and Astros and are the only team in the division with a winning record.

However, they have the fourth-best record in the American League and are neck-and-neck with the AL Central runner-up Royals, so it's clear that if Seattle wants to increase their championship equity, they'll need to make some moves at the trade deadline.

The Marlins make for a great potential trade partner. They're sitting at the bottom of the NL East with a pitiful winning percentage of just 33.3%, better than just the White Sox, and have a below-average farm system so they likely won't be playoff contenders for at least the next few years. Furthermore, some of their assets would complement the Mariners' existing roster extremely well, so let's take a look at a few of the most enticing names.
