@GreggyYurek @jonmorosi @MLBNetwork @MLB idk, says accepted but moderate overpay by mariners.
Then we sign contreras to 2-4 years. Extend reynolds when that contract is over and bring up harry ford too. Makes financial and baseball sense. https://t.co/JJBQBHWEj9
@Aaron_Lafond Mariners trying for him too. But the suggestion of Harry Ford (AA catcher), Jarred Kelenic & either Logan Gilbert or George Kirby or Emerson Hancock (AA pitcher) has me hollering HELL NO. Reynolds also plays CF & over last two seasons ranks last in defensive runs saved w/ -19.
@OlagueRick @C_Ryle34 @TheMikeSalk As to the other name, imagine if the Dodgers has refused to acquire Mookie Betts because they were worried about what they’d have to pay Bellinger in 2023?
Things change. It’s unlikely all those guys are in Seattle by 2026. Possible but hardly a certainty.
Harry Ford may be C
@controlthezone This admittedly is purely a package that would allow the possibility for them to sign 1 or the big 4 SS:
29th Pick in the 2023 MLB Draft
Mariners then go and sign Carlos Correa
Yes I know it’s ridiculous😜
Gabriel Gonzales, Cole Young, Harry Ford & possibly '23 draft picks. These are players who could have significant roles on minimum salaries.
There will be arbitration raises, of course, but Seattle absolutely could add 2 more significant contracts and be well-poised long-term.
@GiraffeNeckMarc Mariners receive:Blake Snell
Padres recieve:Chris flexen and Harry ford
Snell born in Seattle is a great fit for Seattle and with the padres needing a 5th starter Chris flexen is a good 5 has the potential to be a 4. And the padres need catchers and Harry ford is a damn good
Harry Ford is just 19 years old but already showing maturity beyond his years, particularly in giving back.
And with the backdrop of Thanksgiving last week, the Mariners' No. 1 prospect shared some reflective perspective.
@GiraffeNeckMarc Mariners acquire Bryan Reynolds and David Bednar in exchange for Harry Ford (Mariners #1, MLB #65), Jarred Kelenic, Emerson Hancock (Mariners #2), Zach DeLoach (Mariners #9), Prelander Berroa (Mariners #15) and Juan Pinto (Mariners #27)
After giving back to the Modesto community with his teammates all summer, @Mariners' Harry Ford continues to do what he can to "let people know we care about them."
TBT: Mariners #1 Harry Ford lights up the WBC qualifiers, hitting 3 home runs and OPSing 1.952 in his three games to help Great Britain qualify for a spot in the WBC for the first time ever.
Ford had a .460 OBP and a 158 wRC+ in his last 67 games of the season at Low-A Modesto. https://t.co/mRHR1cFylF
I'm not a prospect guy at all, but just looking at various lists/reading writeups & looking at stats, here would be my Mariners top 10 AFTER they sign Felenin Celestin in January:
1. Harry Ford
2. Felenin Celestin
3. Cole Young
4. Emerson Hancock
5. Lazaro Montes
I can’t wrap my mind around what’s better. Hanging onto prospects and going hard in FA. But the Astros are showing their method is extremely effective
So, if the mariners big bat this off-season is acquired for Hancock, Harry ford & Macko I’ll be bummed BUT
Marlins LHP Dax Fulton is a growth prospect I really like for dynasty leagues.
On the hitting side, I would nominate Mariners catcher Harry Ford as a prospect with more upside than many realize. He could grow into that upside in 2023.
The Mariners' Low-A Modesto affiliate is an interesting case study.
Modesto plays in the hitter-friendly California League, but the Nuts' home park is not friendly for runs or power production.
Axel Sanchez, Edwin Arroyo (traded) & Harry Ford look better after park adjustments
My kids are spoiled. Toddlers going to think the Mariners always make the playoffs or something! With Harry Ford coming, Felnin Celesten, & Lazaro Montes- we could have a dynasty! https://t.co/tqxHocUbn6
