jack zSEATTLE — The season is not over yet for the Mariners, but postseason hopes dimmed long ago. Even so, the Mariners’ top brass will stay in position for some time to come.

The Seattle Times recently reported that the team will bring back embattled General Manager Jack Zduriencik for at least one more year.

According to the Times, it was recently rumored that Zduriencik’s contract was extended to 2014 — not 2013 as originally reported. The rumor was confirmed Tuesday as President Chuck Armsrtong told the Times Zduriencik would indeed be back.

The Seattle Times reported that the deal is not an extension, but the remainder of the current contract he is under.

Fans, players and coaches alike had looked to improve to a .500 winning percentage this season with the the help of young bats and some large off-season acquisitions . But the  team is 69-80 and slated to fall way below that .500, making it the team’s fourth consecutive losing season. .
