The Seattle Mariners have named Jack Zduriencik as their new Executive VP and GM of Baseball Operations.
Mets VP of Player Development, Tony Bernazard, had interviewed for the position, as stated in our post Need A Lift To The Airport.
As you may recall, Bernazard was at the epicenter of the entire Willie Randolph debacle. Bernazard was accused of taking the players side over management, revealing private conversations of management to the players, and vice-versa.
Since Jerry Manuel replaced Randolph on June 17th, Bernazard has not been heard from. It has also been reported that Bernazard is close to Manuel, and wasn't with Randolph, thus creating the chasm.
The big question is, if Bernazard is guilty of these allegations, is whether you want a person like this in your organization.
