Today marked the Trade Deadline for Major League Baseball. The Mariners scored some key acquisitions to bolster their lineup for the playoffs. The Mariners acquired Shortstop Jack Wilson and Ian Snell for Jeff Clement,Ronny Cedeno,Aaron Pribanic,Brett Lorin and Nathan Adcock.

The Mariners gained a gold glove Shortstop and a future #2 starter. The Mariners also recieved Right Handed Pitcher Robert Manuel from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for one of their veteran outfielder Wladamir Balentien. Manuel has pitched 4.1 innings and has a 0.00 ERA with 2 Strikeouts and 5 hits against him.

Overall the Mariners shaped up their team to be one of the top teams in the AL West. Hopefully the Mariners new acquisitions can provide some bats and some pitching to lead the M's to a victory.
