Well, Andy MacPhail ia making his presence known, and as Tom Treblehorn alluded to, changes would be coming.
A half an hour ago, the Baltimore Sun reported that Leo Mazzone has been relieved of his duties as pitching coach of the Baltimore Orioles.
After two years as the Orioles pitching coach, Leo Mazzone has been fired with one year remaining on his deal.
The club made the announcement this afternoon in a news release.
"I spoke with Leo today and told him I appreciated his efforts here," said manager Dave Trembley in the release. "Moving forward, I felt that we would be better served with someone else working with our young staff and that it was in his best interests and our best interests to give him an opportunity to look elsewhere now."
I am at work, just out after a series of meetings at work. I'll have more on this later. Wow, the new regime is sure making it known that there will be a culture change.
Leo's magic in Atlanta failed to work in Baltimore, and it's sad to see.
