All I know is he’s number one with a bullet for Brandon.

Of the managers I've actually seen....

1. Davey 2. Buck 3. Hyde

Interesting to see what Trembley could've done if he had any talent.

Since the early 90s he is below Oates, Johnson, Hargrove and Showalter for sure. The rest is like picking from a bunch of trash. Put whoever you want in whatever you want. They all sucked. Ok hes better than Mazzilli for sure.

Hargrove wasn't anything special. Not sure I'd put him over Hyde.

Hargrove was solid. Worked under Thrift and IMO had little talent in a brutal division. Kept the team engaged for most of the seasons

I see you shooting your shot at Rubey. Might as well.

Angelos had the brilliant idea that if he brought in a Yankee coach, the Orioles would become the Yankees, without having to spend Yankee type dollars. Hence, Mazzilli.


Good news! I saw a dog today.

It worked for a little while. 2004 was the best season in quite some time and then 2005 started out great, 1st Place for months, before all falling apart in June and then completely unraveled later that summer with Raffy's suspension and Mazzilli's firing.

Meh, he won 7 more games than Hargrove did the season before. It was the classic Angelos move, like Kevin Millar. That's not a knock against Millar. But he wasn't brought in because he was an impact player. He was brought in so they could point to him and say, "Look O's fans he has a WS ring"

Millar was a solid addition.

Millar was a solid addition.

I agree, and judging from the show he use to do with Chris Rose, he really enjoyed playing for the O's.

For some inexplicable reason, most Orioles players loved playing here even in the lean years. It should give fans hope of ownership extending most of the young talent.

Kyle Bradish up to 96 in his first rehab inning. Four whiffs on six swings.

Really need Bradish to step up and be healthy.

Burnes and Grayson are great. Kremer is hit or miss... he'll keep you in the game more often than not. After those three it quickly turns disastrous.

It wont be tomorrow. Tomorrow will either be a BP game or they will call up one of the guys in AAA or 4 or 5 days rest

Zimmerman is already on the 40-man and last started on the 11th. I'd prefer a BP game to that though.
