I really didn't think they would do this until a new GM was in place, but I have no problem with it either. John McLaren might be a good baseball guy and bench coach, but he was not a good manager and that was clear early on in his tenure.

At the rate the Mariners are going I can see Sexson probably being released real soon since he has become a huge poster child for the Mariners failures.

The AL West feels a lot weaker this year and it's a lot weaker than it should be. The M's were supposed to be going neck-and-neck with the Angels. And although the Angels are trotting out a much more anemic offense than years past, the M's just circled the drain all year. This should have been their year to pounce on the division, but instead have just sunk.

I can't believe the division's coming down to the weakened Angels and Billy Beane's Oakland A's machine that will NEVER die, no matter how many times the team gets blown up.

The A's and the current Mariners just prove that money doesn't mean as much as smart people at the top.

The Mariners never seemed to recover from the 'Bataan Death March' road trip at the end of August/beginning of September last season where they dropped from the lead in the Wild Card to around double digits out. Only surprise in dumping the manager is they did it in mid-June when they are done instead of in early-May when they could have turned it around. What team will be dumb enough to take the refugee from the old Orioles Bullpen of Doom from the late 90's Arthur Rhodes?

I seem to remember a time when players actually played the All-Star game like they actually, y'know, wanted to win it.
