I said Encarnación would be next after they traded Bruce. It is all about the money. The Mariners’ ownership just put another 20 mil back in their pockets. I would say they have saved over 100 million in payroll over last year.
Looks like Bruce is traded. Rumor is the Mariners get an unnamed minor leaguer and cash. Bruce’s salary was 22 mil thru next year. More cash for the ownership. Who’s next? Encarnacion? Another 22 million dollar player that if traded for a cheap minor leaguer would give the owners some more pocket money. Could it be anymore obvious what the priorities are?
