Lloyd McClendon wins Mariners manager job

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Lloyd McClendon has won the Mariners' managerial job. Good for him. I know the world doesn't revolve around us, but it's kind of nice to see McClendon win another managerial job right after the Pirates had their first winning season since 1992. It's as if the world has forgiven him -- not that the Pirates' struggles during his tenure were really his fault, of course. We'll leave aside the fact that the Mariners gig is about as bad as MLB manager jobs get, due to the fact that they're very likely to have a new GM within a year or so. I'm not sure I'd get too comfortable if I were McClendon. But I was rooting for him, and it's nice to see him get the gig.
