Finalists For Mariners Skipper To Be Interviewed

After hearing multiple reports of who had a preliminary interview with Jack Z for M’s skipper, we have heard of two of the finalists on that list.

Shannon Drayer was on 710ESPN Seattle Friday and dropped this one on us via Twitter.

Not sure whether or not Chip Hale, Ron Wotus, Lloyd McClendon, Dave Valle or Tim Wallach are getting a second interview. We do know now however that contrary to popular belief, Assistant GM Ted Simmons, Daren Brown (who was named interim manager when Don Wakamatsu was fired) and Robby Thompson did not even apply for the vacant position.
