Scott began his major league career in 1991 with the Houston Astros, staying with them until the middle of the 1995 season when he was traded along with Luis Gonzalez to the Chicago Cubs for Rick Wilkins. It was with the Cubs, during the 1998 season, that he played in his only post-season. After the Cubs lost to the Braves in the National LeagueDivision Series as a wildcard team, he signed as a free agent with the San Francisco Giants. Towards the end of the 2000 season, Servais was selected off waivers by the Colorado Rockies. Prior to the 2001 season, he was picked up as a free agent by the Detroit Tigers, but was released before the season began. Shortly before the 2001 season, Scott was picked up as a free agent by the Houston Astros. Scott was initially signed as a free agent prior to the 2002 season, but he did not make the opening day roster, making the 2001 season his final season.
Dipoto was hired as the general manager of the Seattle Mariners on September 28, 2015, and the team fired Lloyd McClendon following the 2015 season. Several weeks later, Servais was hired as the manager of the Mariners for the 2016 season.
