Hargrove It Is

As you’ve likely all heard by now, Mike Hargrove is the new Mariners manager. Considering that the organization resigned themselves to hiring a manager with previous experience (which pretty much limits you to retreads who have been fired recently), this is probably about as good as we could have hoped for. Hargrove has a history of success with rebuilding teams into perenniel contenders. He’s not a hard line old school or new school guy, and will do some things well and some things not as well as we’d prefer. He’s a low-risk hire who won’t cause the team to implode around him and will be as successful as the talent he is given.

All in all, we could have done a lot worse, and I’m not certain we could have done much better.
