As I started to think about what teams made the playoffs this year I started to think about players that had played for the Mariners this season and now were on playoff teams. As I looked at all of the trades the Mariners had made all but one were to teams in the playoffs. Do you remember what the Mariners got in return? Here are the trades the Mariners made to teams in the playoffs this year and what they got in return which in many cases is still to be determined.
