The guys talk Mariners... no really, they do. Gary is actually optimistic about next season because the teams that made the biggest turnarounds this year also had the biggest differential in starting pitching, which with Walker and Paxton give the Mariners a glimmer of hope. Tom still isn't sold as big factors for this season didn't pan out and pitching is fickle. A caller has no faith in this current regime to make the right moves.
Michael Saunders understands that he has actually taken a step back this year and hasn't earned himself a roster spot. He is wrapping up his 4th major league season. Is he ever going to get it all together and become the impact player it looked like he was going to be at the beginning of the season? Gary gives 2 examples Texas gave up on Chris Davis and Kansas City did not give up on Alex Gordon. Who is available in the offseason?
