We don’t often find ourselves rooting for the New York Yankees, but Seattle Mariners fans couldn’t be happier after the Bronx Bombers took four straight games from the Boston Red Sox over the weekend. The sweep dropped Boston in the American League wildcard standings and left the Mariners a mere 4.5 games out of the wildcard lead.

At the same time, the Mariners helped their own cause by taking two of three from Tampa Bay, who sits 1.5 games ahead of Seattle in the wildcard hunt.

Though they remain eight games behind the first place Los Angeles Angels in the American League West, the Mariners have managed to stay playoff relevant by continuing to win ballgames.

A host of players who weren’t on the Opening Day roster have played integral roles in logging W’s along the way.

According to ESPN, the Mariners have just traded catcher Jeff Clement and shortstop Ronny Cedeno along with three minor league prospects to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for shortstop Jack Wilson and starting pitcher Ian Snell.

Wilson will immediately assume the role of starting shortstop in place of Cedeno, while Snell should shore up the back end of the Mariners’ thin starting rotation.

Clement, the third overall pick in the 2005 MLB Draft, had fallen out of favor with the team’s front office and had spent all of the 2009 season with Triple-A Tacoma.

Cedeno, acquired in the offseason from the Chicago Cubs, had become the Mariners’ de facto starter at shortstop over the past two months. He replaced incumbent Yuniesky Betancourt, who struggled in the early going with the M’s and was ultimately traded to Kansas City just a few weeks ago.
