Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge stated that the reason he is leaving the organization is due to a difference in philosophy rather than a contract issue. "Let me be clear here: the contract is not the reason I'm not coming back here," Wedge said. "If they'd offered me a five-year contract, I wouldn't have come back here. So let's be clear with that ... it's where they see the club. They being Howard (Lincoln), Chuck (Armstrong) and Jack (Zduriencik). And where I see the club and my vision for the future and theirs, it's just different. And that's about as plain as I can make it." Wedge claimed his vision for the future included giving young players plenty of playing time and having consistency with personnel, whereas the team's recent plan has included bringing in numerous veterans but mainly on one-year deals.
