With a rumored two dozen candidates being considered by the Seattle Mariners for their open managerial position, expect a veritable game of musical chairs to continue while interviews are conducted.
Perhaps the lowest profile job of the vacancies available, the latest on the interview carousel include San Francisco Giants bench coach Ron Wotus, and Detroit Tigers hitting coach Lloyd McClendon.
McClendon, who’s set to interview later this week is also a candidate in Detroit to replace the departed Jim Leyland. The former Pirates manager has five years of managerial experience under his belt courtesy of his stint in Pittsburgh, and has a career record of 336-446. After captaining some horrific teams in the steel city, McClendon experienced postseason play as a member of Leyland’s staff on four different occasions since coming aboard in 2006.
No stranger to the interview process, McClendon previously interviewed for the Seattle job in 2010 and the Miami Marlins position last winter...

The Seattle Mariners completed their fourth straight below .500 season in 2013, and only the presence of the Houston Astros kept them out of the AL West basement for the fifth time in six seasons. Last winter, GM Jack Zduriencik was quite busy, and whiffed on two of the four major transactions he made. 2014 might be a make or break season for Zduriencik's regime in Seattle, and...

It's not a World Series parade, but former Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland will take it.
Leyland, who surprised the baseball world last week by resigning from his managerial gig, told a local TV station that he'll be the grand marshal of the Americas Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit.
"It'll be a nice way to say goodbye to fans," Leyland told WDIV.
When the World Series ends the Mariners will kick their manager search into high gear. In looking at their options, there aren't a lot of "names" out there to be had, but does that matter? Does experience at all even matter? We look into the history of the Mariners and the current situation of other teams to answer that question and figure out what type of manager is...
Until a week ago, Giants fans had spent the offseason petrified of losing someone to the Seattle Mariners. And it just may happen after all.
Of course, we were all scared of losing Tim Lincecum, and the freak is staying in San Francisco for at least two more years. But since Timmy decided to stay, bench coach Ron Wotus thought someone oughta check out Seattle.
It isn’t the parade down Woodward Avenue that former Tigers manager Jim Leyland was hoping for, but it will still be a special moment. On Tuesday, the team announced that Leyland will grand marshal America’s Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit. In a released statement, Leyland expressed his gratitude for the opportunity:
“It is an honor to be a part of America’s Thanksgiving...
