MacSnail in no Hurry to Name Permanent Manager
From The Baltimore Sun:
The Orioles will continue without a permanent manager until at least after the non-waiver trade deadline passes on Saturday, no matter how the team fares on its current road trip.
Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail reiterated today that he does not have a set timeline for hiring someone to replace interim manager Juan Samuel, who has managed the club to a 16-28 record since Dave Trembley was fired June 9.
A managerial announcement will not come until at least August, MacPhail confirmed, as he concentrates on the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
And so what was rumored to be a done deal by the end of the All-Star break will now drag into August. Super.
Oh, and then there was this fun little nugget from yesterday, courtesy of SI’s Jon Heyman:
The great lie of Andy MacPhail’s “total control” over the baseball team takes yet another hit.
This is Birdland.
