Wow. Wonder who will replace him. 

Blessings, in Jesus' name; KJV
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in
heaven and in earth. 
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and,
lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

0x370_cropped]The Mariners have fired Jack Zduriencik, who has been the
team's general manager since 2009. (AP) The Mariners have fired general
manager Jack Zduriencik, bringing to an end a tenure that began with promise
but instead is closing in on its seventh season without a playoff
The team made the announcement Friday morning. Assistant general manager
Jeff Kingston will handle GM responsibilities for remainder of the season.
The Mariners entered the season with what appeared to be their best team
since Zduriencik became the general manager in 2009. Some even predicted
Seattle to reach the World Series, but as of Friday the Mariners were 10
games under .500 and fourth place in the American League West with only the
slimmest chances of reaching the postseason.
"We have reached the point when change of leadership of our baseball
operations is needed for the Seattle Mariners to reach our goal of winning
championships," said Mariners president Kevin Mather. "We are very
disappointed with the results this season, and are not satisfied with the
current operation. The search for a permanent general manager will begin
immediately, and while there is no deadline, we expect to have a new GM in
place as soon as practical."
Mather added: "We have great respect for Jack and his work ethic. He was an
excellent representative of the Mariners both within the game of baseball
and in the community. On behalf of the entire organization, I wish him and
(his wife) Debbie all the best, and thank him for all his efforts."
Zduriencik's firing is a matter of course, a move that many -- including 710
ESPN Seattle's Mike
-Jack-Zduriencik> -- had been calling for.
Said Mariners CEO Howard Lincoln: "On behalf of our ownership group, I want
to thank Jack for his loyalty and hard work over the years, and for the
quiet dignity with which he has carried himself. During his tenure, Jack was
dedicated to building a winning team, and at the same time, has embodied the
Mariners commitment to the community by supporting many charities and
causes, and making a difference in our community. We wish Jack and his
lovely wife Debbie all the best."
