Major breaking news. Sources say major shakeup at Mariners ownership with Howard Lincoln retiring. Not confirmed by team.— Mike Salk, 710 ESPN (@TheMikeSalk) April 27, 2016
This completely changes the landscape of Mariners ownership. We'll get more as this develops.
UPDATE: Looks like minority owner John Stanton is the man who will be taking over. Not a ton is known about him, but he bought stake in the Mariners around ten years ago.
The Mariners have announced a press conference at 3PM. A live stream will be available on their website.
