This offseason is a very important one. The Mariners are right there, on the cusp of seriously contending for a World Series. Everyone knows the Mariners need to add another bat, and if they let Teo walk, they will most likely need 2 or 3 bats. There is also a common thought that they need to add another starting pitcher, whether that is another high-end arm like Aaron Nola or Sonny Gray, or back-of-the-rotation guys like a Kyle Gibson. Whether they trade one of their young starters to acquire that big bat, sign a big bat, or sign a starter, they will most likely be in the market for bats and pitchers alike. These are the guys that the Mariners should avoid this offseason, whether it is due to the contract that they will demand, or based on performance, I don't think any of these guys would be a wise investment.
