Paul Sewald, closer for the Mariners, has nothing but contempt for New York sports.
Ex-Mariner Sewald is having a good season for the New York Mets while ex-Mariner Edwin Diaz is having one of the best seasons in Major League Baseball history. He’s saved 15 of 18 games and his ERA is at a career-low 2.31. Furthermore, he has become a model after which the Mariners model their bullpen pitchers.
Sewald relished the opportunity for some postgame trash talking after Wednesday’s victory over the Yankees, which gave the Mariners a crucial series win and the season series victory over the Bronx Bombers for the first time since 2001.
Since Aaron Judge isn’t a part of our roster, “According to theScore, Sewald made these comments after the series ended. “There is no $35 million pitcher on our staff (Gerrit Cole). Yet, among our roster of twenty-six, there is not a single one of mediocre players.
Literally speaking, Sewald is correct, but the Mariners have shown more aggression. For their playoff push, the team just traded four top prospects for Luis Castillo, signed Robbie Ray to a $23 million per year contract, and is hoping that rookie wunderkind Julio Rodriguez can become their own version of Judge.

In game two of the series, Cole threw seven scoreless innings, and Judge hit his 45th home run of the season.
Sewald’s intended meaning here is unclear, but it seems to be that the Mariners can compete with the best teams in the league.
Also in May, Sewald caused a stir when his Mariners team defeated the Mets in a series for the first time this year.
According to the New York Post, Sewald said at the time, “It was 18 months coming.” I was hoping to get back up here and pitch against them, but they got rid of me. It feels great when we all pull together and achieve success. It’s nice to get some payback on them for abandoning me. Ultimately, we were successful.
With the help of Sewald and the rest of a bullpen that has gotten better as the season has progressed, the Mariners are trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2022 and secure a wild card spot. It’s clear he has no plans to stop in New York and visit any of his friends.
