It’s been an up and down few weeks for the Mariners, who have ultimately played pretty well but sit below .500 at 3-5 since the Kendall Graveman trade. After taking two of three from the Rays, all the way from Tampa, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times joins us to dig into his article regarding the trade and the reaction from inside the team. Ryan provides an inside look at the team on the ground level before and after the trade, and provides context for his story, which has turned out to be one of the major narratives around the Mariners so far this season. We tie it all back to Kevin Mather’s preseason comments and dissect whether or not we think these are isolated or endemic issues. We discuss the state of the team, the immediate and long term futures, and what we would do if we had to steer this team to victory.
