But even with them, a lot of holes. I’m disappointed in the two young arms in Dunn and Sheffield. Do you guys see them turning it around?

    Trout is amazing, and numbers show that he is one of the best to ever play. For how great he is, he’s only made the playoffs in 2014 and is yet to win a postseason game. I think that shows that baseball is a team sport and not an individual sport. Which is why I would shy away from huge contracts to superstar players. Whereas I have no problem handing out big contracts in the NFL or NBA. Put LeBron James or Russell Wilson on some of the worst teams and they’ll find a way to make the playoffs. It’s just crazy to think that possibly the best player in baseball history cannot win.

    They have Kelenic and Rodriguez that are going to be studs, Cal Raleigh a catcher with pop, Marte a SS with speed and a little pop. George Kirby who has great control as a pitcher as he walked no one (see zero) last year, and other decent pitching prospects. Add that to the current team and add Free Agency to fill the holes and you got a pretty good team that will contend. I’m still not sold on all of the pitching prospects outside of Kirby.

    Dunn and Sheffield have preformed below my expectations so far but they have showed glimpses. They both tend to have habits of giving up big innings. I think they can still be good, they are just not there yet.

    If healthy they are going to have the best outfield in baseball, once Kelenic and Rodriguez join Lewis and start
    Playing full time.


    I’m expecting Lewis, Kelenic and Rodriguez to be very good players. After that I won’t count on any prospects. If we aren’t at least competitive by next season then I’ll be disappointed. I probably won’t watch much of this team unless they call up Kelenic and some of the other guys.

    As much as I love baseball it’s getting harder for me to watch this team. They are boring AF.
    The same players being auto-outs every AB, ie Volgleout, Long Jr, Gordon, White.

    I can tolerate White because of his defense and he is better than he’s hitting and his problems are fixable by changing his approach. The others are vets or 4A players. The only AB’s I look forward too are Lewis and Seager’s.

    Yep, I’m looking to be at least a little entertained though. If they get down 2-0 it’s game over.
    Perfect time to get the young prospects up and get some MLB AB’s instead of running the same old spare parts that are overmatched and doomed to fail.

    i just hope the GM has an ace of a plan up his sleeve through
    all this.
    I know they don't want to bring Jake up because of service time
    concerns so why not sign him to a long term deal so he can play?

    All of their batting averages start with a 1. They are all deadweight.
    You should be using those MLB “less pressure than most years” AB’s for your young studs.

    Lewis has to be the AL roty favorite right? Seagar ha been great since the end of last year. Dylan Moore I'm pretty sure is off my $h!t list, he was incredibly bad last year but is now tied for the team lead in HRs and isn't even an every day player. Time for him to be DH when he isn't in the field?

  • This team has hope. Get some good pitchers especially in the pen and bring Kelenic up. The funny thing is we should hate houston so much more then thought. They cheated us out of playoffs when we had cruz and cano.


    Funny thing is AL west is bad besides oakland right now so we are 1 game back of playoffs. Lol

    Painful, but we knew this was coming. The bright spot is the bullpen is often one of the easiest things to build. Lot of good arms in the farm system coming up. Shame they lost this year of seasoning.

    Yep. Not really worried about the starting pitching. Too many holes in the bullpen and starting lineup.
    They are wasting a perfect opportunity to bring some young guys up and get their feet wet in a throw away season at the MLB level but this team is too cheap as they are too worried about the arbitration clock.

    I want the highest pick(s).
    The young guys can come up for like the last 10 games?I'm not sure.
    One of those just had his cast off hand not long ago.

    They won’t “admit“ it’s a service time issue, but if the biggest issue for not calling up prized
    Prospects.

    I get what you are saying. This team has plenty of holes, but I don’t think bringing up a few of the young guys is going to change the record much. The bullpen is a sieve and cannot hold any type of lead, so I think accumulation of loses will keep happening.

    Yes, J-rod (#2 prospect) was the one that fractured his wrist, I don’t mind them taking time with him because of said injury.
    Bringing up Kelenic, and Raleigh should have happened already IMHO. They are wasting MLB AB’s on spare parts that have no future with Seattle (Vogelout, Gordon, M. Smith, insert back up catcher here).

    Kelenic was a projected 2020 call up in September like Kyle Lewis was brought up last year.
    The clock is clicking on Dipoto’s time here. The quicker they get the young studs acclimated to MLB caliber of play the quicker the winning starts (2021, 2022) the quicker the security of a new contract for Jerry.

    If they are worried about the young studs being brought up too early, I counter with Kyle Lewis who made the jump last year from AA with just barely over a season of total minor league play (because of injury), and hasn’t stopped hitting since he was brought up.

    I have zero worries about Kelenic hitting in the bigs. Too talented, too hard of worker, too high of baseball IQ, too confident/cocky to fail.

    Whats more important : 100ABs in the big or 2 additional years of club control?

    Seems like a simple business decision

    Kelenic was a projected 2020 call up in September like Kyle Lewis was brought up last year.
    The clock is clicking on Dipoto’s time here. The quicker they get the young studs acclimated to MLB caliber of play the quicker the winning starts (2021, 2022) the quicker the security of a new contract for Jerry.

    If they are worried about the young studs being brought up too early, I counter with Kyle Lewis who made the jump last year from AA with just barely over a season of total minor league play (because of injury), and hasn’t stopped hitting since he was brought up.

    I have zero worries about Kelenic hitting in the bigs. Too talented, too hard of worker, too high of baseball IQ, too confident/cocky to fail.


    Whats more important : 100ABs in the big or 2 additional years of club control?

    Seems like a simple business decision

    Where are you getting 2 years of Club Control from? Honest question.
    Barring injury, He (Kelenic) will be up next year likely as projected.

    Who knows, maybe they will go the Lewis route they did last year as a September call up?
    I just think they are blowing a golden opportunity to get some RARE pressure free MLB AB’s instead of the usual suspects who likely won’t be here next year.

    Club control can be navigated be extending existing contracts. Sure, it’s going to cost you some $$$, but if you are going to re-sign the player, you are going to payout a likely sizable contract anyhow.

    There’s also the service time issue. Depending on when Kelenic makes his debut, it could be the difference between Seattle having club control through 2025 or 2027. It’s likely to be a consideration for all of the Mariners’ prospects, especially since the club isn’t likely to be a contender until 2022.


    They'd have to wait to bring him up until a few weeks into 2021 to keep club control through 2027. And Kelenic isn't likely to sign an extension for cheap. They could be saving millions of dollars by not bringing him up right away.

    Your last line is my point, it’s a money issue. Seattle is being cheap and it might end up backfiring and biting them in the ass.

    The way around this is via a contract extension at some point. With his talent it’s going to be expensive regardless. It might even cost them more money if they piss him off and don’t bring him up until May of 2021, or worse, he refuses to sign an extension and walks and becomes a FA after the 2027 season.

    I don’t think you d*ck around with players of his talent level by playing these “clock” games. They brought up Griffey and Felix as teenagers, where was the worry about “the clock” back then?

    The thing is back then the players union/owners contract rules were different.
    Unless the player signs a long term deal before the majors,I doubt we will
    ever see another JR,Felix or Aroid up early.
    I'm glad I was able to see it and in an era's where the service time wasn't
    a valid issue like today but greed has led to this.

    Yes he is. He adjusted to being thrown the breaking ball. Another homer today.

    Can’t wait to see the outfield of Lewis, Kelenic and J-rod.

    Noelvi Marte is a SS, you can probably plug in @ 2nd or 3rd, Cal Raleigh is a catcher you probably can rotate between he and Nola @ DH.
