Giants and Mariners Agree to Terms on Strangest Trade Yet
There's something going on between the San Francisco Giants and Seattle Mariners. Both teams are going to be investigated for collusion if they're not careful.
Joking aside, the Giants and Mariners are at it again with another trade reported on Thursday afternoon. This may be the strangest trade the two sides have made yet, swapping infielder Mike Ford back to the Mariners for cash considerations.
To put this into perspective, this is the fourth infielder the sides have traded in a month and second in as many days.
Mike Ford Mariners
Ford was previously traded from the Mariners to the Giants on April 30. Less than two weeks later, he's back in Seattle (for cash considerations). As Giants insider Alex Pavlovic hilariously pointed out, it's unclear which team came out with more cash in the deal.
A former New York Yankee first baseman, Ford saw MLB action in just one game for the Giants. He went 1-for-4, but drove in a pair of RBIs.
