Hot Sexy Seattle Mariners Trade Rumor

Sometimes I'll see blog entries with headlines like You won't believe what (sexy celebrity) wore! or What (controversial famous person) said to (other famous person). The headlines are deliberately vague in order to compel the reader to click. The headline above isn't intended as one of those headlines. I just wrote it like that because we don't have any real details.

Jerry Crasnick:

The #Mariners are moving closer to a trade for a young impact hitter, two baseball sources confirmed.

It's a "significant trade,'' says one source. And Brandon League is not part of the return package.

What we know:

  • The Mariners are trying to trade for a hitter
  • It is not an old, non-impact hitter
  • Brandon League isn't involved
  • The trade isn't insignificant

Now, since I started writing this post, the idea has popped up on Twitter that the Mariners are on the verge of trading Michael Pineda for Jesus Montero. That's presently speculation, but it's also pretty sensible - the Mariners have a wealth of starting pitching, the Yankees have a dearth of quality starting pitching, Montero would be under club control forever, etc etc etc. I don't know what I would think of such a trade just yet, but there you go, for you to think about.

No trade has been made, as far as I know. A trade could happen soon. Happy Friday night! Good luck leaving your computers!
