BREAKING NEWS: Mariners to Hire McClendon as Manager

The Puget Sound Business Journal is reporting that the Seattle Mariners are set to hire Lloyd McClendon as their next manager. Word is spreading fast due to this tweet less than an hour ago.


The cautious journalist in me wanted to wait on this story to get further confirmation but it’s not like the PSBJ is some fly-by-night organization. However, just moments later, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports posted this on Twitter.


There you go Mariners fans. We have our new skipper. Now we can go get some free agents and get 2014 started.
