Mariners Tap Brewers AGM Jack Zduriencik As GM
The Seattle Mariners picked Jack Zduriencik to be their new general manager. Reaction at U.S.S. Mariner is somewhat muted:
If they want to be a great team, they should not stop with Z, but hire a strong analytical department to supplement the scouting strength at the top of the front office. The two can work together, but there has to be a real effort on the M’s part here. If they stop with Zduriencik, it’s not enough - if they let him build a good organization with strong analysts surrounding the Big Three scouting types, this could be a player development machine.It's a decent hire, and probably better than Bavasi was.
