Mariners add LHP Marco Gonzalez from the Cards for AAA OF Tyler O'Neill (#2 in Mariners system and #29 overall according to MLB .com rankings).

Hopefully this goes better than the Adam Jones trade. Because other than the number of players involved, it sure feel like it could turn out to be very similar.

That's always a concern when a pitcher has an injury history, but at least Martinez is younger than Bedard was, and I don't think O'Neill is as highly regarded a prospect as Jones was. Then again, Bedard was an established major-league pitcher, which is why this trade was a one-for-one while Bedard was a four-for-one (setting aside the fact that Bavasi was an idiot).

I like the fact that the Mariners have added two pieces without affecting their current roster, which means that they're going all-in on the Cano-Cruz-Felix-Seager window while they can.

Re: 2017 MLB Week 16 July 17-23

The general feeling from everything I've read and seen is that the Cards got the better end of the deal with the Mariners. But with prospects, you can never be sure. There's also the thought that it's the first of other deals the Cards will make, because the Cards have plenty of OF options in the majors and high minors.

In the meantime, St. Louis bludgeoned the Cubs' bullpen today. Nice way to start a weekend, especially after the brutal loss from yesterday.

Re: 2017 MLB Week 16 July 17-23

O'Neill kinda seems like a one-tool prospect to me, but I don't know all that much about him.

I remembered to tune into the game just in time to watch the wheels fall off in the eighth inning.

Stop me if you've heard this before. The Cards blow a late inning multi-run lead and lose a game.

Buster Olney just tweeted the Cards bullpen has a 9-20 record. Granted, their ERA and overall numbers are good. It's remarkable that they could be considered "in contention" because of the ineptitude of their division.

After giving the game away yesterday it was nice to comeback late and take today's game.

Yes it was, especially all the 2 out hits. The no doubles defense helped quite a bit

Yeah, I was dreading the thought of a sweep when they went down 2-0. Glad to have some runs scored on hits rather than homers.

Guess the Dodgers will have to pick up Darvish and Verlander as rotation insurance.

It was scary last year, I hope it's not as severe, let alone a lingering thing for the rest of his career.

Nice to take the series after Friday's meltdown. And now tied for the division lead.

The Cardinals bullpen didn't lose yesterday's game.

Matt Carpenter continues to be the worse base-runner in the game.

You ever watch Buster "Buckets" Posey run the bases?

He almost single handily ran the Giants out of the playoffs one year. Fortunately for him the rest of the team picked him up.
