    Plus Jefry Rodriguez, which makes it a more decent return. Rodriguez probably won’t be anything other than a 7th/8th inning guy but the Nats kept thinking he could be a starter.

    Any time I see anything about Jered Weaver, I can only think of this and how ridiculous this was

    Jered Weaver becoming "an ace" and getting bounced from the league was a short, great timeline

    Mariners sending $20M to Mets in the deal, along with contracts they're taking back.

    is JP Crawford good? I know he was a top prospect but seems to have floundered a bit.

    He's still very young and think he will be a very good SS defensively and his offense will improve through experience. Has a pretty good command of the strike-zone at a young age.

    A lotto ticket from what I’ve read. Someone else mentioned Santana was also coming to M’s. And then some Seattle blogger who has been all over this trade said something to the effect that there’s more guys coming back and the biggest piece is going to be a P. Which clearly means were getting Aaron Nola.

    Well congrats on Segura. He is simply a fucking joy to watch. Stupid Mariners--I hate this but it's the right move.

    I wouldn't say that. He's not an elite Fielding SS, but he's not a bad one.

    Can't believe the Phils foisted Santana on the M's in this deal. There has to be a pretty valuable prospect on top of JP going to Seattle.

    If this is all they got for Segura and took back Santana.. It's Dave Stewart level malpractice.

    Is it possible that Leake would be the pitchers going back to Philly in that scenario? I don't understand why Seattle would be taking Santana's contract, otherwise, unless Philly is paying most of it.

    Also curious what this would mean for Machado. Unless he's willing to play 3B, this would seem bad for his market.

    I don't think the Phillies make this trade if they think signing Machado is likely. they'll say they're still pursuing him to play 3B, but this feels like plan B to me.

    Why? The FO hates Franco, and there was no way they were going to play Kingery at SS all season. Machado doesn't care about staying at SS as long as the dollars are big enough

    I think Segura's arm is strong enough to play 3rd, it devalues his bat a bit though moving him to a corner though. That's what I remembered from Milwaukee at least, not the best range but a big arm to throw guys out.

    Would seem to me that after getting a reasonably priced option at short, the play would be accept Franco at third and back up the truck for Harper

    I got mad last offseason because DiPoto made that stupid "race to the bottom" quote because he was trying to make himself look good for making stupid trades. That quote got used by Tony Clark and the media all the time last winter. I'm going to enjoy DiPoto needing to come up with more words like "re-imagining" to describe what he and the Mariners are doing this offseason.

    DiPoto needs Crawford to become the player people thought he was two years ago.
