Mariners minor leaguers take center stage in Arizona as MLB labor negotiations drag on

The Mariners have hired Dave Cameron as a consultant for their front office and analytics department. As a co-creator for the USS Mariner blog and managing editor for FanGraphs, Cameron gained fame for his sabermetric and data-based analysis of the Mariners and MLB. It piqued the interest of multiple MLB teams.

In January 2018, he was hired by the Padres as an analyst and later promoted to special assistant to general manager A.J. Preller.

Cameron resigned from his position with the Padres this past offseason and was a “free agent.” Mariners assistant general manager Justin Hollander contacted Cameron this offseason to gauge his interest in working for the organization in some capacity.

Seattle signed Cameron to a one-year contract with the hope of him remaining well beyond that commitment.

I'm surprised he would go with the Mariners since they most likely made him only the 6th best offer.

5th best organization now

only the 6th best offer

Cameron made his infamous remark just ahead of the 2010 season. The Mariners would lose 101 games in 2010 and then post three more losing seasons before finally breaking .500.

yeah, it was definitely a clanger and will always be remembered by a segment of baseball followers. Now if I can only find the Wieters projection from BP....
