News that Bobby Valentine and John Gibbons are both out of the running for Seattle’s managerial opening has people starting to connect some dots suggesting that the Mariners are leaning very heavily toward Eric Wedge as their new manager.
Based on the list of guys they interviewed the Mariners are clearing looking for someone with previous experience managing in the majors and Wedge certainly fits that description, going 561-573 (.495) in seven seasons as the Indians’ manager prior to being fired at the end of 2009.
