After getting bumped off last week in favor of Fangraphs’ Meg Rowley, Times’ columnist Larry Stone returns with a vengeance to reclaim his spot as the main guest for Extra Innings podcast. Stone and beat writer Ryan Divish analyze the two major trades made by the Mariners on Monday.

Seattle sent closer Edwin Diaz and second baseman Robinson Cano to the Mets for five players following a drawn-out trade process. Later that day, the Mariners traded shortstop Jean Segura and relievers James Pazos and Juan Nicasio to Phillies for two players.

Were these the right moves?

Could they have gotten more?

Who could/should be traded next?

Is Jerry Dipoto’s plan for a “stepback” working?
