This was something I actually read on a Seattle Mariners thread, but I thought it related very well with the Mets front office and many Met fans as well. The ideal acquisition for the Seattle Mariners this winter is a speedy right-handed hitting corner outfielder with a strong arm, adequate power, a keen recognition of […]
