Sam Perlozzo Fired (From the Examiner)

From the Examiner:

"A source has confirmed to The Examiner that the Orioles have notified manager Sam Perlozzo that he has been fired before the team embarks on a West Coast road trip. The team is expected to leave for San Diego later today.

Perlozzo went 122-164 during his tenure with the Orioles. During a five-year stint as a manager in the minor leagues, Perlozzo never had a losing season, going 364-263.The team issued a press release with no details of Perlozzo's firing or who would replace him.

Bullpen coach Dave Trembley is expected to take over on an interim basis until a long-term manager is hired.

The team did say it would have a news conference on the sixth floor of the warehouse at Oriole Park at Camden Yards at 1 p.m. today." (updated)


If you get a chance, read Oriole Magic's view on the situation and the release of Sam Perlozzo along with Mike Boehm's view on the losing streak.

I'll have my full thoughts later, but I have to work for a living...

If you work for a living, how are you providing us with these updates. Just kidding.

Do you think they can ask Danys Baez for a refund too?

Long time coming, I guess. I liked him too, he just didn't have the pieces. With some young help from the minors and young talent from trades, maybe Girardi could do something in the coming years like he did in Florida. IF he is named manager.

And if Trembley ever has that interim tag removed, I am going to cry/break things. I worked under him at AA Bowie when I worked in the clubhouse, and he is NOT the man to manage the Orioles. Just an opinion.

Because I multi-task well, buddy :)

Just kidding. No, I just work quick and I have no time to write an essay that would resemble "War & Peace".

Props to your Red Sox. I wish you all could have held Barry hitless though.

Baez, I think the O's paid him off to go away for a few.

Honestly, we should demand one, but if we release him, we lose $12 million...

Perlazzo just hasn't had it since he led the 1983 Lynchburg Mets to the Carolina League championship...
