No big acquisitions? New M’s boss says this wasn’t the off-season to spend large cash
New Mariners manager Eric Wedge has impressed many with his fiery, blunt demeanor. Given the lack of proven talent this season, the 2011 Mariners may have to ride his personality a long way.
After seven years as manager of the Cleveland Indians, Wedge was hired by the Mariners to bring toughness and discipline to Seattle, where he demonstrated his commitment to the job by moving his family here (Mercer Island), something few of his predecessors did.
He also made his first Star of the Year awards event last month, where he stopped by to talk with Sportspress Northwest columnist Art Thiel.
