Adair, Wetteland named to staff

As expected, Rick Adair, 50, has been named the new Mariners pitching coach. But here’s a surprise: his bullpen coach is none other than John Wetteland (photo). As a longtime Montrealer and former Expos fan, it’s the kind of surprise I like. We’ll be talking to them within the hour.
Adair will be acting as a pitching coach with his third team and his first since the 1990s. He held the job with the Cleveland Indians for two years and later with Detroit.
Wetteland, 42, was once the game’s top closer with Montreal, and later, the New York Yankees — winning the World Series in 1996 with that team when Mariano Rivera was still a setup man. Remember life before Rivera? Also spent years with the Texas Rangers. Anyhow, we’ll see how good a coach he is shortly. He already did the job with the Washington Nationals in 2006.
