Were the Mariners wise to issue a contract extension to Jack Zduriencik?

Last week, the Seattle Mariners announced a multi-year contract extension for general manager Jack Zduriencik, putting to rest the speculation that a second-consecutive losing season would put his job in jeopardy. Keeping Zduriencik in charge of the rebuilding effort for at least two more years seems like a wise decision on the surface, but how much has he really accomplished in his time with the Mariners?

Divide and Conquer, AL West: Deadline Chaos

0

Joey Matschulat

A look at what AL West teams may end up doing before Sunday's trade deadline.

Early Wednesday afternoon, the Angels' Ervin Santana nailed down only the 11th no-hitterin the last 93 years where the lack of hits was somehow accompanied by at least one run allowed. Shortly thereafter, the Mariners snapped their historic 17-game losing streak behind a stunning nine-run, 17-hit outburst from an anemic Seattle lineup and seven frames of one-run baseball from Felix Hernandez at Yankee Stadium. A few hours later, the Rangers dropped their second consecutive home game to the sub-.500 Twins and watched their first-place lead slip to a meager two games. A little while after that, the Athletics’ also-anemic offense pounded out 13 runs to seal a clean three-game home sweep of the Rays.

There's a huge part of me that wants to devote ample attention to each one of these stories, but it's late July, which means that the overriding storyline throughout baseball—and, of course, the AL West—is the non-waiver trade deadline. That, I think, deserves the preponderance of the attention this week as we look at two contenders who have every reason in the world to be buyers and two non-contenders that we would naturally assume to be aggressive sellers. As you'll see, however, sometimes our preconceived notions don't cleanly match up with the reality of baseball's trade market. Aside from gazing into each AL West ballclub's trade situation, I've also highlighted the career record of each currently employed general manager in the division, as well as the three most notable July trades that each has made over the last three seasons:

GM for a Day: Seattle Mariners

9

John Perrotto

The offense needs an overhaul, but the organization really needs to rebuild.

Jack Zduriencik understands how fickle baseball can be after spending a lifetime in the game. He was reminded of that this season as he went from being hailed as a genius in his first season as the Mariners' general manager in 2009 to being rumored that his job was in jeopardy in 2010.
