Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon is assembling his coaching staff with a Tacoma flavor.

The Mariners filled their coaching staff today, with the announcement of six new coaches:
The Mariners added four players pitcher Logan Bawcom, 1B/DH Ji-Man Choi, OF James Jones and OF Stefen Romero to their 40-man roster. These transactions give the Mariners 38 players.
The ideal acquisition for the Seattle Mariners this winter is a speedy right-handed hitting corner outfielder with a strong arm, adequate power, a keen recognition of the strike zone, a history of durability and a contract that won’t guarantee him $50 million or $60 million after he turns 35.
When the Seattle Mariners introduced Lloyd McClendon as their new manager on Thursday, no question put to McClendon was more obvious than the initial question: What compelled you into wanting this job?

New Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon spent his childhood in Gary, Ind., birthplace of the fictional Harold Hill, the Music Man, and Michael Jackson, the music man so gifted he became known as the “King of Pop.”
Jack Zduriencik’s hand-written list of managerial candidates had more than 60 names on it. He assembled eight members of the Seattle baseball operations staff in a room and held a draft.

When you lose 91 of 162 games in a season, there isn’t one thing that went wrong.
The plans didn’t include a managerial change.

It became apparent more than a month ago that the Seattle Mariners would finish the 2013 season with a losing record, just as they did last season, and the season before that and the season before that.
Seth Smith went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored as the Oakland Athletics took a 9-0 win over the Seattle Mariners in the final regular season game.
