Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — After another losing season for the Seattle Mariners, manager Eric Wedge isn’t too pleased about his murky future with the team.

“It’s tough,” Wedge told Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times. “I feel like I’m hanging out there. …My best managing days are ahead of me. Whether that’s here or somewhere else. But I want to be here.”

He continued, “I moved my family out here, I committed to the community. I’m all in. I haven’t done anything wrong except to come out and try to coach-up these kids, teach them how to play at the big league level.”

Wedge is on the verge of finishing up his third season with the team. With three games to play in the regular season, the Mariners are 70-89 and will finish in fourth place in the AL West.

The most wins Wedge has had with the Mariners in a single season was 75, which was set just last season.

Before coming to Seattle, Wedge spent eight seasons with the Cleveland Indians, and won Manager of the Year back in 2007.
