Jack Zduriencik went to the News Tribune offices to speak the Associated Press Sports Editors Northwest chapter meeting yesterday. Larry Stone and Ryan Divish both have articles up about it, full of love for Jack.
Divish's piece is more about Zduriencik:
"Everything that former Seattle Mariners general manager Bill Bavasi wasn’t when it came to job performance and people skills, current general manage Jack Zduriencik is and more. Bavasi could be aloof, arrogant and condescending, sometimes confrontational. Zduriencik has an everyman quality, reflecting his 27-year climb up baseball’s ladder to the general manager’s office."
Stone's article is more about the team and what Jack needs to do:
"General manager Jack Zduriencik remained upbeat. But he tempered that optimism with a realistic acknowledgment of the team's weaknesses."
