Antonetti staying put
Chris Antonetti’s name has already been tossed around as a potential option in Seattle, now that Bill Bavasi got the axe. Antonetti made it pretty clear today that he’s not interested in that or any opening. You probably remember Antonetti turned down the Cardinals’ job last year, after the Indians stepped up and gave him assurances of just how valuable he is to the organization (read: $).
“I hope I’ve been very clear how happy I am in Cleveland,” Antonetti said. “I’m looking forward to continuing to build a winning team here. Hopefully I’ve been clear with that. That’s not with respect to Seattle. That’s my situation here. I’m very happy.”
He would not say if Seattle has contacted him about the job.
