Geoff Baker takes off the gloves in this Seattle Times piece on how the dysfunction in the Mariners’ front office is killing the team.
The Mariners’ front office is plagued by “total dysfunction and a lack of leadership,” according to former manager Eric Wedge. Wedge and other former and current team employees describe problems at the top of the organization.
I value Geoff Baker’s reporting. He’s proven to be a very honest and professional journalist. He can be trusted, and I think he’s done a great job here of detailing the sickness that is infecting the Mariners organization. This was the bombshell story we’ve all known was there and been waiting for.
I used to be a Mariners fan because they were an entertaining, exciting team. I still pay attention, but now the entertainment value is on the level of viewing a train wreck in slow motion.
