The Extra Innings podcast returns for another week of Mariners discussion but with a brand new guest.

Daniel Kramer of MLB.com joins Times beat writer Ryan Divish to discuss his first full season on the Mariners’ beat after replacing longtime journalist Greg Johns.

The two beat writers discuss the difficulties of covering this season and building relationships with players due to COVID restrictions.

They go over the 2021 season — what went right, what went wrong and what was unexpected.

The discussion goes into potential offseason moves for the Mariners and the idea of adding through trades instead of free agency. There is also a prediction of an expected move and a bold move this season.

Also included is the audio from the press conference with Ken Griffey Jr. and Mariners chairman John Stanton.

Besides Soundcloud, the Extra Innings podcast is also available on iTunesStitcher and Spotify.
