Mariner Manager McLendon Fired

Lloyd McLendon, who in his first season, lead the Seattle Mariners to a rare winning season, has been fired after a very disappointing 2015.  The Seattle Mariner were a chic pick at the beginning of the season.  However they never got on track and finished again with a losing record.  Word is that new GM Jerry Dipoto wants a field manager that shares his vision.  Dipoto is reported to be a fan of the new thinking in baseball, while McLendon is considered "old school".  Edgar Martinez, who rejoined the club as hitting coach in mid season, has been invited to stay in that position.
