Eric Wedge takes over rebuilding job in Seattle

Since Lou Piniella left the Seattle Mariners bench as the manager in 2002, the manager’s office in the Pacific Northwest has been revolving door of who’s coming next!

The other managers were Bob Melvin, Mike Hargrove, John McLaren, Jim Riggleman, Don Wakamatsu and Daren Brown. At least Piniella stayed 10 years and that added stability to the franchise but now another manager is ready to jump in to take control of a losing team.

After a year away from baseball, former Cleveland Indians manager Eric Wedge is ready to go again.

Eric Wedge is now in Seattle (MLB) reported Saturday night that Wedge would be the next Seattle manager, but it was officially confirmed on Monday that 42-year-old Wedge was hired as the Mariners seventh manager since 2003 and he received a three-year contract.

This rebuilding job will not be easy to retify. Seattle has not been to the playoffs in 10 years; it’s coming off it’s second 101-loss season in the past three and they are clearly the worst team in the AL West behind contending teams Texas, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Oakland. Ichiro Suzuki is clearly the only star player on the team.

Wedge is used to rebuilding. He was given the task twice in Cleveland. In seven seasons on Lake Erie, the media-friendly Wedge had some nice ballclubs that featured power, pitching, defense and speed. In 2007, he took the Indians to one win of the World Series.

But in his second try at rebuilding the Tribe, he lost his job.

The New Yankees have found out that Cliff Lee is tough in the postseason in clutch situations.

On Monday night, he went through their lineup like a buzzsaw cutting down trees, striking out 13 batters in leading the Texas Rangers to an 8-0 win in the best-of-seven American League championship series in Bronx, New York.

Josh Hamilton banged out an early two-run homer off Yankees starter Andy Pettitte and started a six-run explosion in the ninth inning that sent New York fans wondering if they’ve met their match in the postseason.

The left-handed Lee, allowed only two singles in eight innings and became the first pitcher to reach double figures in strikeouts three times in one postseason.

Known as Mr. Automatic, Lee improved to 7-0 with a 1.26 ERA in eight postseason starts. Three of those victories have come against the Yankees, including two in the 2009 World Series for Philadelphia.

Pitcher Roy Oswalt did it all for the Phillies in Game 2 Sunday night.

He was an ace on the mound, a pesky hitter at the plate and ran the bases like a speedster.

Oswalt pitched 8 brilliant innings, shortstop Jimmy Rollins drove in four runs as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Francisco giants 6-1 Sunday night to even up the National League championship series at one game each.

The Phillies got some inspiration during the pre-game festivities when former Phillies outfielder and current broadcaster Gary Matthews, the 1983 NLCS MVP, threw out the first pitch.

A former Houston Astros ace, Oswalt allowed one run on three hits and struck out nine. He also singled using one of Jimmy Rollins’ bats and scored a run after racing through a coach’s stop sign in the seventh inning.

Rollins broke out of a 1-for-15 postseason slump, going 2 for 3 with a bases-loaded walk and a bases-clearing double.

The Giants struck out 10 times total in the game, but Cody Ross connected for his third homer in two games.

There was a crowd of 46,099 on hand for the 135th straight sellout at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
