Mariners podcast: Jack Zduriencik on the draft

By Shannon Drayer

This week on the podcast I sit down with general manager Jack Zduriencik and discuss the recent draft, specifically the strategy involved in signing No. 2 pick Gareth Morgan. Why did the team go well over $1 million above slot to sign him and how were they able to do that?

I also share an interview I had with Morgan an hour after he signed his first big-league contract. In the interview he talks about the competition he has faced in baseball since he was 14 and also what former big leaguer is advising him.

The podcast also features a chat with Ichiro expert Brad Lefton, who tells us what Ichiro’s focus is at this point of his career and also takes a look at why the elite Japanese pitchers are enjoying big success in MLB right now.

The podcast wraps up with two Mariners and one former Mariner sharing their thoughts on the club and the rest of MLB honoring Derek Jeter.
