SEATTLE (AP) -- John McLaren has been fired as manager of the
Seattle Mariners. Bench coach Jim Riggleman will run the team for
the rest of the lost season.
The Mariners made the announcement Thursday, three days after
they fired general manager Bill Bavasi -- and just before the worst
team in the major leagues left on its road trip. McLaren became the second manager in the majors to be fired this season. The New York Mets dismissed Willie Randolph this week.
