The Mariners are bringing back their entire coaching staff. Is this a big deal?

The Seattle Mariners are growing as a baseball team, so despite the poor finish to the 2011 regular season and the generally hopeless-looking record they posted this season, there are encouraging signs of growth and development. It might take awhile for everything to start gelling, but right now a steady presence is needed to ensure future growth in these proceedings.

Greg Johns, the Mariners reporter for MLB.com, has some good news on that front.

This should be good times for Eric Wedge, who probably wanted to ensure he would return next season with the same staff and ensure overall stability in the clubhouse. Making sure that everyone returns is step one to continuing to attract new free agents and develop some of the younger, more promising prospects on the staff. It might not mean the Mariners will make positive improvements next year, but it certainly does lay the foundation for future improvement.
