07:25 AM ET 11.04 | With one reportedly hired over the weekend, the manager carousel continues to spin. A's bench coach Chip Hale is the first candidate known to receive a second interview for the Mariners' managerial and would appear as such to at least be considered a finalist. According to Scott Miller of CBSSports.com, Hale's interview will take place Monday in Seattle. The Mariners are aiming to have a manager in place by the end of this coming week, according to sources, so Hale's second interview is a very good sign for him. Hale was a Mets coach before joining Bob Melvin's staff in Oakland, and before that a longtime minor-league manager. Hale interviewed for the Mets manager job that went to Terry Collins. He played in the majors with the Twins and Dodgers.

I guess this is good news if you are a M's fan. Still the bad news coming out of the Northwest is no good free agent wants to play there and you will not make the playoffs in 14.

Which washed up star are they going to bring in to put butts in the seats?

Seattle seems more like a Triple A franchise than a major league one.

Be careful, AAA might sue!

Honestly, Seattle has made strides the last few years. I think they are close to being a pretty good team. They need a couple of linchpins on offense. Of course, I don't think Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb are available.

I'm not seeing what you're seeing.
