Nats coach brings helm of Mariners vs
The Mariners will be without their skipper for the following two games, But luckily for the M his replacement is plenty not unused to this weekend opponent.
With manager Lloyd McClendon out of his action to go to his daughter wedding, Bench coach Trent Jewett will take over the post in an interim capacity on the Washington Nationals today and Saturday. And if anybody knows the excellent, It’s Jewett, Who coached in their organization for the last five years and was a candidate for their manager position this past offseason.
Is a little comforting to at least know what you up against, Jewett understood Friday. Have a pretty good feel for the majority their club. East leading excellent(75 57) Have consistently been some of the best teams in baseball this year. They built their selves around home grown talent like outfielder Bryce Harper, Third baseman Anthony Rendon and pitchers the nike jordans Zimmerman(Friday basic) Together with Stephen Strasburg(Thursday starter), Which is a template the Mariners have been striving to stick to in the Jack Zduriencik era.
From Jewett viewpoint, What the Mariners have accomplished this year has been akin to what he saw growing in Washington.
Think the basis is based on pitching(For both Seattle and houston), He explained. year (Found when it comes to Seattle) Has felt as being similar to last year(In arizona) From a wins and loss viewpoint a lot of close ball games, A lot of one run advantages, Quite a bit of one run games, So there a lot of parallels. That a great club, I fully grasp. It run by tremendous people and there lots of things that I miss, And I see arranging same traits over here. Provided Jewett spent with the Nationals, He has a lot of strong relationships within the firm, In which made it hard for him to leave. So when long time friend McClendon, Who he coached with in Pittsburgh and has known when the mid 90s, Came naming after being hired by Seattle, Jewett had a tough decision face to face with him.
Not a whole many things in baseball that would have taken me out of that situation, If it were up to a whopping me. Lloyd McClendon is one, And the way this organization treated me when I came here to talk to them were obviously things that did lure me away, He explained. Had a special union with Lloyd, I had an idea what however expect from me, I had an idea of what you need from him, And it was just a possibility I felt was too good to pass up. Also means he has a good grasp of McClendon managing style, Which he will attempt to stick to during his interim stint.
My relationship with Lloyd is one where I have a good feel for what he gonna do more and more often, And I manage consequently, Jewett had to talk about. Done an enormous job and I think he deserves a lot of accolades on how he managed this ball club. Period, CF
