It was reported a bit ago that the New York Yankees interviewed former Mariner and Indians manager Eric Wedge ifor their open managing job on Thursday. Um, OK. Not to disparage Wedge, here, but I can’t remember the last time he was on anyone’s short list. He managed Cleveland from 2003-2009, and the Mariners from 2011-2013 compiling a career 774-846 (.478) record. Most of the wins came with a Cleveland team he took over while it was still competitive. He lost 95, 87, and 91 games in his three seasons in Seattle. His tenure ended ugly there too, with him publicly complaining about receiving no vote of confidence from the club before being let go and then, after being let go, saying “If they’d offered me a five-year contract, I wouldn’t have come back here.”
The Yankees interviewed Eric Wedge? OK.
