What in the world is Jerry Dipoto and the rest of the Seattle Mariners front office thinking right now? On Tuesday, before the Mariners-Astros showdown, it was announced that closer Kendall Gravement had been traded to Houston.
What? Not only is Graveman a standout righty, but the Mariners and Astros are in the middle of a series, with Seattle recording a memorable win on Monday night. Now, M's players are understandably furious.
That quote from an anonymous player speaks volumes. The morale was high for the team following Monday's win, and now it's back in the dumps. Simply unreal here from the front office.
