Sept. 2 show wrap: Reaction to the Josh Lueke story and what to do with Aaron Curry in tonight’s exhibition finale

In case you aren’t familiar with the Josh Lueke story, here’s a rundown:

When the Mariners acquired him in the Cliff Lee deal, the team claimed they knew nothing about his legal issues, which included felony charges in a rape and sodomy case. Lueke later pleaded no contest to a lesser charge. But Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times wrote today that new information contradicts the team’s claim about the extent of their knowledge of Lueke. According to Baker, former Mariners pitching coach Rick Adair, who was fired in August along with manager Don Wakamatsu and two other coaches, said he informed general manager Jack Zduriencik about Lueke’s legal issues well before the deal was made.
