Greetings! This offseason continues to get wilder and wilder. With the pending MEGA-TRADE of Robinson Canó and Edwin Díaz to the New York Mets soon to become official (maybe?), I figured it would be fun to reflect on other big trades in Mariners history.
Prompt: What is your favorite Mariners trade of all time?
The Guti & Vargas deal comes to mind. So does the Cliff Lee for peanuts deal, even though we all remember how that worked out. But still, PEAK CLIFF FUCKING LEE FOR POCKET LINT, THAT IS THE CORRECT ANSWER. Ahem. Uh, yeah, anyways, let’s hear about your favorite trade. It can be for purely sentimental reasons or because you think it was truly the best trade from a value perspective.
As always, we will front page the best submissions over the weekend. Hold on to your butts and let’s hope things work out with all these trades!
