Wander by the right writer and - boom - you're a candidate

Among the dozens of assistant GMs wandering the halls of the St. Regis was Bob Boone.

Boone, the father of Bret and Aaron, is a former manager and once came to spring training for Seattle - and didn't make the team.

Now, he's with the Washington Nationals.

As he walked by a handsome, manly writer he knew well, Boone asked how things were going.

"Would you like to be a managerial candidate in Seattle?" the writer asked.

"Sure, put me on the list," Boone said.

So, GM Meeting Update!!

Bob Boone is a possible candidate for the vacant Mariners managerial job.

That's how it works here....
