According to the Baltimore Sun, Dave Trembley has been relieved from his duties as manager of the Baltimore Orioles as of this morning...
Trembley's replacement for now will be Juan Samuel, who has been tagged as the interim manager. Norfolk manager Gary Allenson will join the team as the third-base coach.
From the Baltimore Sun: Dave Trembley, who was asked to the lead the Orioles through the early stages of a massive rebuilding project, has been fired less than two months into his third full season as the team's manager.
Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail met with Trembley Thursday. The team is saddled with a major league-worst 15-39 record and off to the worst start since the 1988 team began 0-21.
Juan Samuel will take over the club on an interim basis, while MacPhail is expected to begin the search for Trembley's long-term successor immediately. The next manager will be the club's ninth since Peter Angelos became the principal owner of the Orioles in August 1993.
At this point, Trembley can relax somewhat, relieve himself of the stress he faced in Baltimore and not have to face the media every night after loss after loss.>>> Read More
