SEATTLE (AP) A year to the day after praising Jack Zduriencik as he was rewarded with a contract extension, Seattle Mariners President Kevin Mather found himself speaking with ownership this week on all the areas he believed the club was lacking.
It was clear to Mather that Zduriencik's time as Seattle's general manager was at an end and his regret was not making a change sooner.
"I was so optimistic about 2015 at the major league level that I waited too long to start asking myself and others the tough questions about what is going on here," Mather said. "Why aren't we having more success here? What's going wrong, here?"
