Don Wakamatsu, who was fired as Mariners manager earlier today, just issued a statement via his former employer’s public relations department.

“I would like to thank the city of Seattle and all the baseball fans
here in the Northwest for the great support offered to me during my time
as Mariners manager.
“My single biggest disappointment is that we were not able to finish
what we wanted to finish here, bringing a championship club to the fans.
“I can not tell you how great the fans were to me, and to my family.
The support I received here will always mean a great deal to me.”
Nothing too revelatory here, but we shouldn’t expect much from a statement distributed by the team. According to Stone, Wakamatsu will conduct a conference call tomorrow.
