Dee Gordon

Why the Mariners Acquiring Dee Gordon was a Bad Trade and Mistake

On December 7, 2017, Jerry Dipoto made a trade to acquire speedy second baseman Dee Gordon from the Marlins in exchange for a trio of prospects headlined by Nick Neidert. Gordon had a very good year in 2016, and then he joined a roster that won 78 games in 2017 and was headlined by stars like Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, Kyle Seager, and an aging Felix Hernandez. He was added to help the Mariners break through and make it to the playoffs, but he fell far short of expectations.
