This is a major loss for the Brewers, as Jack was Doug's go-to guy when it came not only to scouting, but to other matters as well. This guy clearly knows baseball inside and out, and should be a great signing for the Mariners. Under his direction, they're likely to improve over last year immediately, but that's not saying much. Haudricourt has more on the story.
In other Brewers news, Doug has interviewed Ken Macha, Willie Randolph, and soon to be Bob Brenly. He may stop at those three. The man he passed over, Dale Sveum, might also come back as a coach.
