The Seattle Mariners and manager Eric Wedge will be parting ways after this season.

The 2007 AL Manager of the Year, Wedge informed the club Friday that he would not return after serving out the final three games of his three-year contract. Under Wedge’s leadership the M’s finished at or near the bottom of the AL West every year.

Wedge told reporters he felt he and the team’s front office were not headed in the same direction.

Until upper management is sacked Seattle will always be a dead zone for MLB.  Good business people (they make a profit every year) but absolute idiots or, more disturbing, uncaring about putting a good team on the field.   For Fan Appreciation Night they had fireworks, the manager resigning and another loss.  The fans would appreciate mass resignations more.

If I remember correctly the Seattle Mariners averaged just over 100 wins a season from 2001 to 2003 and still missed the playoffs two of those years let alone not getting to the World Series.

All the while losing Ken Griffey Jr., Randy Johnson and A-Rod just before this.

I'd like to think it matters...but it doesn't. I've been an M's fan for decades (no idea why) and they have been horrific for a nightmare. This move is equivalent to moving the deck chairs around on the Titanic.

@The_Thrill I feel for Seattle fans, the Mariners had a nice stretch from 1995-2001, still no World Series or pennant. Gotta be tough, Mariners are one of two teams (Expos/Nationals) to never appear in a World Series.
