Brackish smell from one side of sink drain

Double sink in kitchen. The left side constantly has this brackish smell, so strong, you notice it whe you walk in the kitchen. There is only one trap, so it can't be the trap or both drains would be smelly. My wife wants me to replace the baskets, think that will help? I flush water down the sink often and the odor will disappear for a bit, but then comes back. Water from the faucet has no odor.


Pardon any typos, my IPad has a mind of it's own for spelling corrections!

A picture taken under the sink so we could see the piping layout may help figure it out.
I can not see it having anything to do with a reguler sink straner. If it's a garbage disposal I could se it happening.
