Congratulasians to Don Wakamatsu, who was named manager of the Seattle Mariners last week! The 45 year-old, former bench coach of the Oakland A’s is the first Asian-American to hold that position in MLB historayyy.
And that was the easy part. Because now Wakamatsu has the unenviable task of trying to make his team–who went 61-101 this past season and haven’t been to the playoffs since 2001 despite being ranked #9 in payroll–NOT SUCK, which may be a steeper hill to climb than making history.
