The Other Shoe Drops
John McLaren, the incompetent manager of the Mariners for about one season, has been fired. This is neither surprising nor scapegoating, as Seattle has been nothing short of stunningly awful when it was expected by many to be a high-priced contender.
Although this move won't salvage the season it is the correct decision. The M's will hopefully start reevaluating their situation with an eye toward the future.
