First, the good news. The Mariners became demonstrably — though just incrementally — better Thursday, without violating the cardinal rule of the trade deadline: Do no harm. At least, none that will haunt you in the future at a rate hugely disproportionate to the value of the addition.

Now, about those additions. The lukewarm news is that the Mariners didn’t do nearly enough to solve their dire offensive problems. They barely dented them. But that was never a realistic proposition in a market dominated by impact arms, with a dearth of such bats.
