“We have given no thought to making any changes in managerial personnel,” Armstrong said. “Same for the GM. Listen, he’s part of the solution, not the problem.”
Three of the first seven seasons in existance, the Mariners posted a winning percentage below .400. Despite all the horrible teams in the mid-80s, they never did it again until 2004, and now they’re threatening even the ’78 club for the worst record in franchise history.
You might want to consider that they are part of the problem now, Mr. Armstrong. Give it some thought.
