Mariners: 5 worst managers in team history
1. Maury Wills: 1980-1981 – Record: 26-56 (.317)
This man right here was miserable. He did not have a lot to work with when he took over for the fired Darell Johnson, but he got 58 games, and somehow lost 38 of them. He lost 11 of his first 13, and the last eight of the 1980 season. He only made it through 24 games in 1981 before the Mariners brass had had enough. He was 6-18 with a run differential at -52 at the time of the firing.
All in all, he was above and beyond the worst manager the Mariners have had in their time, but, Mariners fans should realize that for the most part it’s due to bad teams and not bad managers. but The Mariners have had nine different managers since they last made the playoffs, and that is a testament to how bad this team has been. Here’s to hoping the team figures out their dynamics and makes their way back to the postseason.
