Mariners interview Wakamatsu, Ready is next

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE (AP) - The third day of Mariners interviews to find
their new manager brought Oakland bench coach Don Wakamatsu to
Seattle and will continue with Triple-A manager Randy Ready.
Wakamatsu has never been a manager but interviewed for the job
with the Texas Rangers a few years ago. He said he was edgy
Wednesday morning as he spent about four hours talking to new
Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik (Zur-EN'-sik), trying to
learn if the team is going to have a long-term rebuilding project
or push immediately to win in 2009.
He sees the Mariners as a young, talented team that with
prodding could win right away.
