M's Fire Bob Melvin.

In case you missed it...

Yahoo! Sports wrote:SEATTLE (AP) -- Bob Melvin is out as manager of the Seattle Mariners. If there's a bright side, he's sure getting a glowing performance review from the guy who let him go.

Melvin was fired Monday, a day after Seattle ended its worst season in 12 years with its 99th loss. He lasted two seasons, getting the news during a congenial but difficult meeting with general manager Bill Bavasi.

``There is a point where you shed a tear,'' Bavasi said. ``It's really difficult. It is awful.''

The GM said the decision ``crystalized in my mind'' over the past five or six days, and that team chairman Howard Lincoln and president Chuck Armstrong supported the move. However, Bavasi refused to explain the reasons.

'Bout time... Bob Melvin was just a "yes man" to the front office...
