Mariners sent Lee packing 6 months later for free/nothing after trading Chris Taylor to the Dodgers.
DiPoto is a genius.
Last night, I was pulling for Taylor to hit 4 or 5 hr's, why not? Each one makes the M's look worse.
On June 19, 2016, Lee was traded to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Chris Taylor. In 14 starts for the AAA Tacoma Rainiers he was 0–9 with a 7.74 ERA. while Taylor blossomed into a prolific hitter for the Dodgers. Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto, a prolific trader, has referred to this as one he wishes he could take back and that he "whiffed" on it.
