Mariners Breakdown: Hot streak, trade targets with Stelton, Rowland-Smith

Jul 11, 2022, 5:50 PM

When a team is playing as good as the Mariners have been in July, the expectation is that they’ll make a key addition before the trade deadline to further bolster its roster.

Why can’t we do it at Seattle Sports, too?

Joe Fann: The M’s are worthy of your emotional investment

For our weekly Bob’s Baseball Breakdown video with Bob Stelton, we picked up a rental of our own in the form of Mariners analyst and former MLB pitcher Ryan Rowland-Smith. Luckily with the Mariners on an eight-game winning streak, 16-3 record over their last 19 contests and now sitting in position for an American League wild card spot, we picked a good time to add a lefty with veteran experience.

In this week’s video, Bob and “Hyphen” address a number of Mariners topics, including:

• How they’ve so quickly turned around after falling 10 games under .500 three weeks ago

• First baseman (and Seattle’s best hitter) Ty France being snubbed for the All-Star Game

• The nastiness the M’s are now rolling out on the mound

• Who Julio Rodríguez, the one Mariners All-Star, is reminiscent of

• Which players M’s general manager Jerry Dipoto should be targeting before the trade deadline
