Here’s why the Mariners should extend the contracts of GM Jerry Dipoto and manager Scott Servais

SEATTLE — There’s magic happening at T-Mobile Park, and it’s time to reward the architects of the most unexpectedly meaningful season in recent Mariners history. Manager Scott Servais and general manager Jerry Dipoto have been dangling with expiring contracts all season. It was prudent to see if the burgeoning rebuild would stay on track and provide tangible evidence that the payoff was imminent.

Manager Scott Servais expects Mariners to be buyers at trade deadline

After slipping a few games below .500 in mid-June, the Mariners have rallied back with a 14-7 showing that has them three games over .500, at 45-42. That still places them nine games back in a tough AL West, but they’re only three-and-a-half games down in the Wild Card standings. Seattle has looked like one of the many teams whose deadline trajectory could very well be determined by how the team fares in its next 10 games or so, but manager Scott Servais suggested in an appearance on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM that he expects the front office to operate as buyers (Twitter link, with audio).
