How crazy that the end results of Stearns trades this season have been:
Willy Adames
Rowdy Tellez
John Curtiss
Daniel Norris
Eduardo Escobar
for
Alberto Ciprion
Payton Henry
JP Feyereisen
Drew Rasmussen
Reese Olson
Cooper Hummel

Only Escobar and Norris are rentals. Not too mention Hunter Strickland too.

Am I missing something??? That's some next level stuff right there.


When you spell it out like this, it really does look insane on paper that we turned those names into significant big-league contributors.

I'm ready to hear who we were in on but couldn't figure out a deal with.


I'd bet a lot of money that we talked to the Twins today. A lot of money.


We probably wanted Donaldson but not with that contract which makes complete sense.

Not going to lie. Horrible trade deadline for Stearns. We have an opportunity to win the World Series and Escobar…who I wanted…was the only guy we got? Really? Trevor Plouff…go walk a plank.


Willy Adames was a better acquisition than anyone we could have gotten this week. Stearns unlike a lot of these GMs has been working for months so he wouldn't have to scramble out of desperation at the last minute and give away our best prospects for rentals.

Just pretend they got Adames today instead of back in May



No, that is a horrible way to look at it. We are in the position we are in now because of that trade…yes, but we had an opportunity to punctuate it with some major exclamation marks. Go get Buxton. Go get inglesias.

Bowden Francis went in the deal for Tellez.

I guess at some point when you're pretty set on the roster it's hard to see how certain guys would help. Scherzer sure, but he wanted to go West and had control of that. Where would Story play? Do you think he is going to outproduce Adames? I don't. Voit maybe, but does he move the needle at all over Rowdy? I don't know.

I don't know who they should have gotten. Any other rotation options have to be a notable upgrade over Anderson and Lauer and Houser. Besides Scherzer, who out there was? Some bullpen depth always makes sense, and that's exactly what we did.

Neither of those guys were traded. Perhaps they weren't available for anything other than an absurd overpay?

And you could argue somewhat that it was similar to trading Reese Olson and Payton Henry for Adames since we basically replaced the relievers we traded for Adames with Curtiss and Norris.

“Did your phone die this morning” was the beginning of the first question to Jerry Dipoto in his news conference after the deadline. Wow… [laughing] I do think it’s a bad look for the Mariners to not do anything around their young core to show his belief in them and build up that winning culture again.

Rodriguez to Atlanta. Probably last move.

Why does everyone always forget about Jandel Gustave! Acquired from the Pirates this season for 17-year old, Samuel Escudero.

Wouldn't stun me to see the Brewers involved in an ultra-minor deal yet.

This came in at 3:34 and I got excited reading the first few words until I realized Ken was like 45 minutes late...

In addition to a completely new outfield, the Braves also got Richard Rodriguez.

Kind of an odd deadline for a few teams. In addition to the bewildering non-strategy of the Rockies, the Braves and Phillies were apparently close enough to the Degromless Mets that they decided to buy. Seems like that may look foolish in the end, but at least I understand why they did what they did. Honestly felt like some other teams (cough....Angels) should have sold more off than they did.

Braves I dont get... Joc in CF and then platooning Rosario/Duvall in LF, Soler in RF... They know the DH isnt in the NL right? Either way that's one big bat not playing each day.

Angels and Rockies are two of the most incompetent organizations I’ve ever seen. Not sure if having a bad strategy is really better than no strategy. Add the Diamondbacks in this as well. Tons of guys on expiring deals they should have moved.

The Cubs got RHP Anderson Espinoza from the Padres today for Jake Marisnick. Talk about a blast from the past, a former top 25 prospect in baseball back in 2016 and 2017. He’s somehow still just 23 years old.
