Potential Mariners trade targets

prospectinsider.com — New general manager Jerry Dipoto prefers the trade route, and while the club never will ignore the free agent market, the second-time show runner already has demonstrated an ability to identify his team's needs and execute a quality trade.

The Mariners and free agency

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners have a multitude of needs if they plan to rectify the issues that kept them from building upon their 87-win season of 2014. Hundreds of free agents are on the market as of Friday, free to sign with any club. Many make some sense for a club like the Mariners.

Churchill: M’s Offseason Primer

prospectinsider.com — It's quite obvious the Seattle Mariners need a lot of help if they are to have a chance to participate in the soiree in October. The general consensus seems to be, however, that the club needs a complete overhaul. This is absolutely, unequivocally incorrect.

ICYMI, my M's offseason Primer, which includes a free agent target piece -- j.mp/1GQiEmV

Analysis: M’s deal Miller for SP, RP, CF

prospectinsider.com — Jerry Dipoto didn't wait very long. The Seattle Mariners announced Thursday evening they have completed a six-player trade with the Tampa Bay Rays. Incoming are right-hander Nate Karns, lefty C.J. Riefenhauser and outfielder Boog Powell. Heading to Tampa are infielder-outfielder Brad Miller, first baseman Logan Morrison and right-hander Danny Farquhar.

Reeling It In: Thoughts on M’s before Series

prospectinsider.com — We'll discuss the hire of skipper Scott Servais and his staff more later this week, starting on the Sandmeyer and Churchill podcast this week, but it's so easy to get frazzled with all the things on the checklist of the Seattle Mariners and new general manager Jerry Dipoto.

Churchill: M’s skipper search, front office, AFL

prospectinsider.com — It's been nearly a month since the Seattle Mariners named Jerry Dipoto the club's new executive V.P. and general manager. Since then, numerous decisions have been made, including parting ways with Lloyd McClendon. Dipoto has chosen to retain assistant GM Jeff Kingston, pro scouting director Tom Allison and amateur scouting director Tom McNamara.

Mariners 2015 Prospects of the Year

prospectinsider.com — It's usually not difficult to identify the players of the year in minor leagues of a big-league organization. Determining the prospects of the year isn't necessarily as elementary. In fact, it never is in my experience. The difference? Player of the year typically is all about performance.

Notes from Dipoto’s press conference

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners made it officially official Tuesday morning, announcing the hiring of Jerry Dipoto as the club's Executive V.P. and general manager. Dipoto spoke at the presser like a man who was prepared not only for the media, but for the job itself.

Here is what I took form Dipoto's press conference today -- j.mp/1jwa7e6

Churchill: Dipoto’s first moves

prospectinsider.com — It's still September, so expecting a blockbuster trade or even a major decision right away is asking too much. We could hear about decisions on Lloyd McClendon and some other scouting and player development changes in the next few days to few weeks, but we're probably a month or more away from any significant player decisions by new Seattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto.

Sep 29, 2015

As I wrote earlier today -- j.mp/1jw9Sj8 -- Dipoto seems to be planning on an aggressive hunt for arms.

Churchill: M’s make solid choice in Dipoto

prospectinsider.com — At the start of the club's search for a new baseball leader it was my opinion that Jerry Dipoto would be, at least, a satisfactory choice to replace Jack Zduriencik. As the process unfolded the public was not privy to all that were contacted, every interview conducted or how those interviews went.

@SorensSam Usually it means a lot of conversations have started. Leads to deals, even if none actually get done at the meetings.
