Orioles: Not another manic Monday
I realize that Jeff Zrebiec already wrote in Orioles Insider that nothing is likely to happen with the managerial situation today, but he qualified that by saying that you can never know when Peter Angelos will suddenly just say enough is enough.
I'm willing to go out on a limb and say there is no chance of that today. Say what you want about Angelos, he's a very proper, old-fashioned guy and I do not believe that he would make a big news splash on Memorial Day.
It remains to be seen whether he or Andy MacPhail will do something tomorrow in New York, however. The Orioles are now in a state of suspended animation, and the managerial uncertainty almost certainly is contributing to the club's flat performance. If you think they won't make a change on the road, there is an organizational precedent. In 2005, they fired Lee Mazzilli when the team was in Southern California playing the Angels.
I agree with Jeff that the situation has reached the point where Dave Trembley's dismissal is inevitable, and that Trembley is a decent guy who did the best he could in a horrible situation.
