Perlozzo to be Fired (according to the Sun)

From the Baltimore Sun's Dan Connolly...

"The Orioles front office is meeting this morning with manager Sam Perlozzo and is expected to fire him, according to a club source.Perlozzo, 56, a Cumberland native who called managing the Orioles his dream job, will be removed about 2 1/2 months into his second full season leading the club..."


"Bullpen coach Dave Trembley, a longtime minor league skipper who has occasionally subbed for bench coach Tom Trebelhorn this season, has been named interim manager while club executives begin the search for a long-term replacement.In addition, ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting that the club has hired Andy MacPhail, former Chicago Cubs president, as the Orioles' chief operating officer, presumably replacing Joe Foss, who left the Orioles earlier this season, and is in negotiations with former Florida Marlins manager Joe Girardi to replace Perlozzo."

Will Girardi be the man? Stay tuned.

If this is all true, I have a ton of empathy for Sam. In talking with him yesterday, he seemed to be a good guy and I know he tried his best; however, things need to turn around and sometimes a change can spark things for sure.

Girardi is a complete 180 from Sam Perlozzo, but this team sorely needs it.
