You can’t deny that the two have a great business partnership going on Seattle Mariners and the Cincinnati Reds.

The two teams are clearly living different realities.

The Reds decided to sell well before the start of the season, and traded or failed to retain most of their good/expensive assets.

As a result, he has an average record of 42-61 before Wednesday’s games.

The Mariners, on the other hand, were on the verge of making the playoffs last year, and solidified a strong core with a few additions, before the campaign begins and ahead of Tuesday’s trading deadline.

In both cases, the Mariners and the Reds struck blockbuster deals.

Before the season, the Reds sent Jesse Winker And Eugene Suarez for Seattle instead of prospects Justin Dunno, Brandon Williamson, Jake FraleyAnd a player will be named later or cash.

Now, ahead of the deadline — four days ago, in fact — the Mariners brought in a star pitcher. louis castle in exchange for shortstop noelvi mars And edwin arroyo and to the right levi studto And Andrew Moore,

Both teams got what they wanted

The second package is actually more impressive for Winker and Suarez than the Reds, but they are both good.

Now, the 57-49 Mariners look ready to fight for a postseason spot, and the rebuilding Reds are able to accumulate players with quality prospects and short service times for their future contention windows.

Marte, in particular, is very impressive, and could be one of the league’s best shortstops in the next five years.

Meanwhile, Seattle has been relying heavily on Suarez and Winker to win games recently.

The two men entered the home against the Yankees on Wednesday, and look set for a strong second half.

Seattle certainly needs both to be at the top of their game to make it into October.
