    Mariners Hire Lloyd McClendon

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/1...s-manager.html


    The Mariners have hired Tigers hitting coach Lloyd McClendon to be their new manager, according to a report from the Puget Sound Business Journal (Twitter link). Jon Heyman of CBS Sports confirms the move (also via Twitter).

    McClendon, who turns 55 in January, has five years of Major League managerial experience, having served as the Pirates skipper from 2001-05. McClendon compiled a 336-446 record in that time and has since served as a coach on the Tigers' staff. McClendon served as Jim Leyland's bullpen coach in 2006 and has been Detroit's hitting coach for the past seven seasons.

    Nice to see him get another chance. Was one of the most likable Reds I can remember.

    As I recall, he and Eric Davis were best of friends while playing for the Reds in the late 80s. I wonder if we'll see ED showing up on Lloyd's staff somewhere?

    McClendon being 55 is frightening.

    Gonna be tough for Lloyd to better his career W-L record with the M's, but I am happy for him that he got another shot.
