It’s that time again. With the return of the hot stove season comes Talking Mariners, our hot stove-focused podcast.

Dipoto: Brash could start in ’23, Mariners getting ‘hit’ about SP trades

This year, there’s a new voice joining me to talk all things Mariners offseason: Curtis Rogers, who you’ll know from Seattle Sports’ Bump and Stacy and as a host of the pregame and postgame shows on the Mariners Radio Network.

Episode 1 is a bit of a primer for what could come this winter in Seattle. Mariners president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto and general manager Justin Hollander have outlined specific needs for the team and have been clear that they will utilize free agency and trades to complete the 2023 roster. How big of a player will they be in the market for, and how far could they dip into their talent pool if the right player is available in trade? A couple of key topics we explore.


• Mitch Haniger, are they in or out?

• Could we see a surprise with the pitching?

• Is J.P. Crawford truly locked in at shortstop? (Plus a new wrinkle at second base.)

• The Astros aren’t the only problem – two teams to watch this winter that could be of impact to the Mariners’ postseason hopes in 2023.
