The Orioles still need a first base coach and bench coach. They have expressed serious interest in former outfielder B.J. Surhoff for the first base position.
It would not surprise me at all to see the Orioles bring in Surhoff and/or Bordick as part of the coaching staff. They're local, they're what you might call "true" Orioles, and they are both fundamentally stellar. IMO, you can't go wrong with these guys.
Also, more MacPhail #2 possibilities:
In other news, the Orioles have sought permission to interview Chicago White Sox director of player development Alan Regier for an untitled position under MacPhail, according to a baseball source. Regier, who joined the White Sox in 2006, was the Chicago Cubs' minor league field coordinator in 1998 and 1999 while MacPhail was club president.
MacPhail said he will bring in at least one front office member this offseason, but citing tampering rules, he would not confirm or deny any candidates. Other possibilities include Larry Corrigan, an assistant to the GM in Minnesota; Oneri Fleita, the Cubs' vice president of player personnel; Bill Harford, a Cubs scout who also has served as director of player development and farm director in the organization; and former Colorado Rockies GM Bob Gebhard.
That's quite a list. Wonder what the job title will officially be. "Mike Flanagan's New Boss"? :-)
UPDATE: Per the Star Tribune, One of the hot baseball rumors is that former Cardinals General Manager Walt Jocketty could join former Twins and Cubs executive Andy MacPhail with the Orioles.
