Oriole Magic Happens Again? Trembley Your Manager of The Year?

Seriously, is this team charmed, lucky or just that damn good? The Orioles once again staged one of their amazing comebacks -- their 19th! -- as they beat the Pittsburgh Pirates in the bottom of the ninth, 8-7.

After coming back from behind twice, it looked the Orioles had their backs against the wall as Adam LaRoche hit a 2-run homer to put the Pirates up 7-6.

Well, in the spirit of the 2008 Orioles, the game is never over until the final out. Against Pittsburgh closer Matt Capps, Oscar Salazar led off the bottom of the ninth with the tying homer and three batters later, Ramon Hernandez singled in the winning run with two outs, as the Baltimore Orioles garnered another improbable victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Baltimore is now 34-33, and seemingly have all the confidence in the world. In a year in which gloom and doom was expected, the Orioles are competing in the AL East -- something no one would have imagined in March.

Thus, it brings to mind one question -- should Dave Trembley -- 67 games into the season be given AL Manager of the Year consideration? Well, seeing what I have, if the Orioles continue their nice little run, he should! In today's Baltimore Sun, Rick Mease asks that question and it causes you to wonder how much of a difference has Trembley made (could you imagine this happening to Sam Perlozzo?)
