Please join me in warmly welcoming the 2014 Mariners coaching staff to Seattle! Though it is still uncertain what they may produce in the coming seasons, it is comforting to have a staff in place to be able to move forward in the offseason.
And just to note: the Mariners are keeping a couple of non-coach staffers: bullpen catcher Jason Phillips and left-handed batting practice pitcher Scott Budner.
Also, don’t forget that Trent Jewett was named McClendon’s bench coach on November 11.
The coaching staff is set and the roster is bare. With the winter meetings fast approaching on December 8th, it is time for the Mariners to start making some serious offseason moves in the free agent and trade markets.
