In this week’s episode, host Jason A. Churchill and Alex Carson debate the merits of the Seattle Mariners potentially trading for Justin Upton and Evan Gattis of the Atlanta Braves, Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers, as well free agents Nelson Cruz, Yasmany Tomas and Hanley Ramirez.
As expected, the Seattle Mariners have been linked to free agent Hanley Ramirez. He’s a player the club has had some level of interest in for a few years, and understandably so, he hits. He’s also right-handed and plays shortstop, so on the surface he sounds like a fantastic fit for any team that doesn’t have a present-and-future stalwart at the position.
With the offseason officially upon us, we say goodbye to the 2014 teams that we loved and hated and to the players on those rosters. I say this because the free agency period begins on Tuesday and there are many, many big-time players and MVP caliber athletes who can make an impact wherever they sign and cause chaos to the team they leave.
