Seattle Mariners President and Chief Operating Officer Kevin Mather announced this morning that EVP of Baseball Operations & General Manager Jack Zduriencik has been relieved of his duties, effective immediately.The Mariners are one of two Major League Baseball Teams--the former Montreal Expos, now Washington Nationals, being the other--never to have played in a World Series. The Mariners last made the playoffs in 2001. Zduriencik's contribution to that losing streak extends back to 2008 (seven years).
....Mather said, "We have reached the point when change of leadership of our baseball operations is needed for the Seattle Mariners to reach our goal of winning championships. We are very disappointed with the results this season, and are not satisfied with the current operation. ....
Mather added, "We have great respect for Jack and his work ethic. He was an excellent representative of the Mariners both within the game of baseball and in the community. On behalf of the entire organization, I wish him and (his wife) Debbie all the best, and thank him for all his efforts."
