The Mariners interview Milt Thompson for their hitting coach gig. This is important. This means something.

Apparently former Braves players who never really hit all that much are the new inefficiency when it comes to batting coaches: Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mariners have interviewed former Brave and — more importantly for our purposes — former Phillies hitting coach Milt Thompson for their opening at hitting coach. I guess they’re not all that interested in former Brave and former Mariner Jim Presley like the O’s are. A shame, really.
