Seattle Mariners Reportedly Hire Eric Wedge As Manager

According to this story on Yahoo Sports, the Seattle Mariners have reportedly hired ex-Indians' manager Eric Wedge to be their new skipper.

SI.com, according to Yahoo, first broke the story on Friday, a little less than two weeks after the Mariners completed their second 101-loss season in three years. Wedge will become Seattle's sixth manager since the beginning of the 2007 season.

There has, as of yet, been no official announcement from the Mariners.

If this comes to pass...best wishes to you, Eric. With the Indians you played the hand you were dealt, and in 2007 it was almost a good enough hand to reach the World Series. Again, best wishes.
