Even though the Mariners sit at home while the playoffs take place, there has been plenty of intrigue to get to this week. After all, it’s going to be a pretty important offseason in Seattle, isn’t it?

Here’s a look at what is covered in the new episode of the podcast:

• Mariners broadcaster Aaron Goldsmith shares his wrap-up of what we saw from the M’s this season in a conversation from Brock and Salk.

• Mike Petriello of and MLB Network joins Wyman and Bob to detail his view of the Mariners at season’s end from a national perspective.

• MLB Network’s Jon Morosi discussed the playoffs and the upcoming offseason for the Mariners in his weekly chat with Wyman and Bob.

• Finally in a bonus conversation, Drayer catches up with’s Brandon Gustafson to talk about two big articles he wrote this week – one an offseason primer on the names the Mariners may be looking at this offseason, and the other on the message the M’s were sent by two of their AL West rivals reaching the ALCS (find links to both below).
