Mariners bench Brendan Ryan for accountability issue

Brendan Ryan is taking a seat for Tuesday’s game against the Rangers due to an accountability issue, manager Eric Wedge told Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times.

The only additional detail provided was that it was unrelated to the poor throw Ryan made in Monday night’s game.

Ryan might have been late to arrive to the ballpark, as was known to happen too often in St. Louis. The Cardinals made it clear that Ryan’s attitude played a role in the decision to ship him to Seattle prior to the 2011 season.

Ryan is one of the game’s best defensive shortstops, but he’s also a lifetime .256/.314/.340 hitter. He needs to clean up his act if he expects to remain in the league once he loses a step.

Munenori Kawasaki is starting at shortstop for the Mariners tonight.

    He probably needs to do his taxes.

    love his attitude and defense, but he is a bit of a spaz. he was probably a very hyper child.

    As if that scrub out of the lineup really matters.
