The Perlozzo Press Conference and More Opinions...

Well, I watched a little of the Orioles’ press conference streaming on WBAL, and basically I learned absolutely nothing that I didn’t know already nor could find from various media outlets.

Not much info was said, besides the obvious – Sam Perlozzo is gone and Dave Trombley is the interim manager

Furthermore, nothing was said about Andy MacPhail being hired, or the process of finding a new manager. However, anyone with an internet connection or a radio knows that the Orioles have hired MacPhail and want Joe Girardi as manager, just that they have not made it public yet.

Blah, blah, blah. It sounded like a White House conference, in that you could not find out any real info.

Roch Kubatko, Matt Palmer and the scribes are working hard to let us know what is going on, however, it sounds like it is going to be a hard job.

When the scribes are left out of the ballpark, you have to figure there is a lot more that’s going on than meets the eye.

Working in corporate America, a lack of information by those in charge, is never a good thing.

There may be a lot going on in the works and the powers-that-be with the Orioles will let us know when they want the public and media to know.

Again, like I stated before, I think canning of Perlozzo was in the works for a few days, and also the placement of MacPhail as COO.

Yikes, what a mess. How exactly does a team go about replacing an owner?

Geoff -- maybe a bunch of us should go the Green Bay packer route, get a few thousand people to invest in a team.

Too bad MLB will never approve it.

The Orioles are a freaking mess. Today just reinforced it and seeing things from the outside looking in, it's even scarier now.

2007 is done for fans in Baltimore.

Wayward -- I sense there's a lot going on, it will all not come out at once, but there will be change.
