Mariners begin search for new Manager

(Seattle, WA)  —  The Seattle Mariners are in the initial stages of their search for a manager to replace the departed Eric Wedge.  General manager Jack Zduriencik is reportedly conducting interviews in Phoenix this week.  Possible candidates include Oakland A’s bench coach Chip Hale, former Tacoma Rainiers manager Daren Brown, and Mariners bench coach Robby Thompson.  Former M’s manager Lou Piniella says he was contacted several weeks ago by the Mariners, but told them he didn’t want to manage again.
