The person responsible for the players was ordered to enjoy a delicious beer
From the AP game report:
Before McLaren went off, Bavasi ordered each of the 25 Mariners
players to sit at his locker immediately after the game to take full
responsibility publicly for having the worst record in the major
leagues despite a $117 million payroll that is just below the richest
One of his few G-rated remarks was: “Got to buckle down and get after it! It’s got to be a total team effort … ”
Then, after 45 seconds, McLaren stomped off into his office and closed the door.
“He could have said that a month ago,” general manager Bill Bavasi said later.
The walls are crumbling.
