SEATTLE -- Unhappy with the lack of clarity on his future, Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge popped off on Wednesday saying he feels like hes left "hanging out there" by the organization regarding his status for 2014. Carlos Gonzalez Jersey . Wedges comments were his first regarding his contract which expires after this season. He originally signed a three-year deal to become Seattles manager in 2010 and he indicated theres been no word given whether hell receive a new deal. "Its tough. I feel like Im hanging out there, thats the reality of it," Wedge said. "But Im coming here and doing my job. You know how passionate I am about this team, and these players in particular, and this organization. The unfortunate part about how its being handled is the effect it has on the players. Thats why were all here, is for the players." Seattle is about to conclude a fourth straight losing season and a step back from the incremental progress the Mariners showed between Year 1 and 2 with Wedge in charge. Wedges season was interrupted in July when he suffered a mild stroke and missed a month and the Mariners have stumbled down the stretch since he returned to manage the club in late August. The Mariners are 10-22 since Wedge returned on Aug. 23. "Im a strong man, and Im going to be fine either way. But Id like to see this thing through," Wedge said. "Weve done a lot of developing with a lot of young players over three years. Id like to be here to lead them and turn the corner." Wedges comments came a day after the team confirmed general manager Jack Zduriencik would return for 2014. Wedge said he believed some conversations regarding his future would take place between Wednesday and the end of the regular season on Sunday but was unsure. Wedge was brought in to replace Don Wakamatsu -- who was fired during the 2010 season -- because of the track record he built in Cleveland taking the Indians through a rebuilding process and nearly leading them to the World Series. But the rebuilding never seemed to end in Seattle with a constant influx of young prospects from the minors being called up and some veterans failing to meet expectations. Wedge is 211-271 in his three seasons as Seattles manager. Seattle went from 67 wins in 2011 to 75 last season, but wont match that total this year. "We havent taken a step back. Its just the fact we keep bringing up kids. Youre going to continue to make mistakes up here while youre learning," Wedge said. "The forward part of it is we have a lot of kids that are moving forward, and that should pay off for us. But youre going to have to still add to that. Thats just the way it works." Seattle was on the fringes of contention in July, winning eight straight games when Wedge fell ill. He was helped off the field during batting practice on July 22 and getting rushed to a nearby hospital. He was diagnosed with a mild stroke the next day and became a month-long recovery process that called for changes in his diet, exercise and dealing with the stress of his occupation. Robby Thompson filled in while Wedge was out and Seattle went 13-15 during the stretch. Wedge said using his health as the reason not to bring him back would be unfair. "My best managing days are ahead of me whether its here or somewhere else. I want to be here. I moved my family out here. Im committed to the community. Im all in," he said. "I havent done anything wrong except for come out here and coach up these kids and teach them how to play at the big league level. Thats what I do. I dont bitch about anything. Im here to help these kids become good solid big league players and hopefully solid citizens in Seattle. So if that is not enough for them, then so be it." Jason Motte Jersey .

The Rangers grabbed a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference Final after Sundays 3-2 overtime victory against the visiting Habs. Gerardo Parra Jersey . Seriously. Seven years of losing has brought many different faces, players and management, to the annual pre-season get-to-know-the-team round up. http://www.rockiesapparelsshop.com/jake-mcgee-jersey-c-12/ .com) - Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll knows about life in the NFL from other stints around the league.San Jose Sharks 1, Winnipeg Jets 0 (Jets 22-24-5, 11-14-1 on road) - After the win in Anaheim against the top team in the Pacific Division, the Jets faced the Sharks - the second best team in the Pacific Division. The loss was the first under Paul Maurice, snapping the team and Ondrej Pavelecs win streak at four. It was the second time this season the Jets have been shut out. The Jets are in a stretch of three games in four nights, with a home game against Toronto Saturday (TSN 1290) and a road game in Chicago on Sunday (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). The first period was fast paced with chances at both ends, as the shots ended 11-11. Jets went 0-2 on the power play. The pace slowed in the second as the Sharks kept the Jets to just four shots on goal; Pavelec stopped all 11 he faced. Each team had a power play, the Jets man-advantage coming after a charging penalty to Mike Brown for a dangerous hit from behind on Jacob Trouba. Trouba was slow to get up but stayed in the game. The only goal of the game came in the third, as the Sharks capitalized on a Jets turnover - Joe Pavelski, with his seventh in four games and 28th on the year, scoring the goal. The Sharks outshot the Jets 10-5 in the third. The Jets killed off two third period penalties, going 3-3 on the night. Final shots favoured San Jose, 32-20, with Alex Stalock picking up his second straight shutout. Bryan& Little has his point-streak snapped at five games but had a terrific opportunity in the third only to miss the net with his one-timer. Trevor Story Jersey. Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele had their streaks end at four games. Pavelec stopped a high, hard blast from Brent Burns in the third. He stayed down for a time, was checked out and stayed in the game, but still seemed to be feeling the effects off the shot as the game wore on. "The effort was there," said coach Maurice post-game. "Were there areas we can be better in, yes. We need to find ways to generate more against these teams. I didnt have a problem with the group, some individuals that we needed more from I will get to. They dont give you much. Its difficult to complete plays against them. Our D core got tested by two very good teams on this trip and did well. Can we become a good defensive team but keep the offense? I think we can. Im excited about this group going forward." Toby Enstrom and Zach Bogosian have become the Jets shutdown pair on defense and had two good games against two tough teams. "I like the way they move the puck, like the way they play the game," said Maurice. Trouba led the team in ice time at 24:23, Olli Jokinen led in shots with five. It was not a good night in the face-off department, with the Sharks winning 65 per cent.
