Art Thiel of the Seattle PI reports that Seattle Mariners CEO Howard Lincoln apologized to the media for negative comments he made in a company email that was leaked to the Seattle Times.
“I’m very sorry if my friends in the media misunderstood what I was trying to get at,” he said. “I have high regard for what they do. It’s a tough job and I have great respect for them. I’m sorry my humorous attempt to bolster our front office morale inadvertently hurt some people. That’s not me.”
