Statement from Sam Perlozzo via Roch Around the Clock & More...

Roch Kubatko has a statement from Sam Perlozzo on his blog, Roch Around the Clock. I'm sure it has been tough day for Sam Perlozzo, but god speed to him and his family.

He was very nice and respectful when I chatted with him yesterday, and maybe somewhere down the road he can manage again. It's just too bad...

Be well, Sam.

It looks like all the coaches will stay in their positions for the time being. As well, more roster moves are being made, but at this time, I'm not sure who will be coming up, etc.

As well, Buster Olney reports a few members of the Oriole brass will try to convince Girardi to take the managing job with the team. Also, it looks like the team will give Andy MacPhail total control of team operations, which would be a plus.

At this point, anything that can be done to change the tide of this organization needs to be done.

If you have a moment, read Ken Rosenthal's view of the situation with the Orioles -- it's hard not to agree with him in his article.

Girardi made his weekly appearance on Michael Kay's radio show today and, when Kay asked him about the Oriole's managing job,he said, "No comment." I think that tells us everything we need to know. If he wasn't being considered for the job and/or didn't want it, he'd have said he wasn't.

Maybe he'll tell Peter Angelos to shut the F____ up.

Lady, I think he'll be coming to the Oriole, just for the challenge.

I was going to write a post on Joe Girardi tonight.

He'll be in the glamour division of sports - the AL East, and if he could do the same thing he did with the Marlins with the Orioles, he'd be a hero.

In addition, I think he'd relish the challenge if he could the Orioles competitive with the Red Sox and Yankees.

Only if, Girardi could get the control he wants.
