"The Mariners today confirmed a King 5 report from last night that pro scouting director Carmen Fusco has been fired, effective immediately. Last night's report stated that the firing was, in part, related to the team's acquisition of relief pitcher Josh Lueke in the Cliff Lee trade. "

Sounds like the Mariners GM won't be employed much longer himself....

Wasn't this the same GM who all the media outlets were falling over themselves trying to give him the "GM of the Year" award before the season started?

Wow, what a fall from grace.

Wow. What a boneheaded acquisition.

The Mariners are in worse shape than we suspected and we suspected they were in pretty bad shape.

I don't know if there was that sentiment at the beginning of the season. I do recall many preseason rankings had them winning the West.

How wrong they were. (that just made me think of my rankings here in WSI...I think I embarassed myself once again!)

The Mariners have made terrible move after terrible move and need to clean house. Bad scouting creates a vicious cycle of bad drafts, bad trades and bad signings. The Mariners are guilty of all 3.
