As the MLB Winter Meetings begin, the Mariners have created even more salary cap space, but at the same time have created another big hole in a corner outfield spot. The trades of Jarred Kelenic, Eugenio Suarez, and declining to re-sign Tesocar Hernandez have left a lot of questions surrounding this offense. Jerry Dipoto has his work cut out for him ahead of the Winter Meetings and early signs indicate he will be extremely active, rightfully so, there is a lot of work to be done.

With yet another hole created, I wanted to highlight what I think would be considered a successful Winter Meeting this year. Granted, this is only a few days to get stuff done, so I am not expecting everything to be complete here, but I do expect some heavy lifting to be handled. With needs in both corner outfield spots, a DH, and a third baseman being the biggest needs, it is unrealistic to expect these all to be addressed in the next few days, but I have come up with a list of a few combinations of what I would consider a successful Winter Meeting for the Mariners.
