Thanks for tuning in, today! Great show! A reader wanted to know how close the Mariners have to be to first place for the front office to consider them deadline “buyers”.
I talked about a conversation I had with a scout over lunch yesterday. He disagreed with me that the M’s should go for it. Hear why. In the same clip, I also re-state my case for why this team should take a shot now. The one thing those who continuously argue for “future building” above all else have going for them is, they never have to be proven right or wrong. Because their end game is always in the future.
