    Ryan reports that the Diamondbacks were working on a Mike Leake deal earlier this week. Not clear if talks are completely dead or not.

    Edit - Mariners would need to also pay some salary

    2019 31 Seattle Mariners $16,000,000 $5M paid by St. Louis Cardinals
    2020 32 Seattle Mariners $15,000,000 $4M paid by St. Louis Cardinals
    2021 33 Seattle Mariners *$18,000,000 $18M Mutual Option, $5M Buyout
    Earliest Free Agent
    : 2021

    Mariners are currently on the hook for $6.7 Million left in 2019, $11 Million in 2020 plus minimum 5 M in 2021

    WHY?

    As it looks now, ARZ will not be making the playoffs. LA is running away with the division and the 2 WC spots will most likely end up going to teams outside the NL West. Leake ain't going to change that so you might as well look into potential deals for Greinke. Follow ATL's blueprint, purge all your high salaried guys and build yourself into a contender through your farm.

    Why? Leake is not going to help this team in future years. They need to trade Greinke before the deadline.

    Well, St. Louis is paying Seattle $9 million of that total. But really a total give away
