Quick and dirty, so let's get to the point: The (Baltimore) Sun finally catches up to Buster Olney and ESPN...Sammy's gone.
Perlozzo, 56, a Cumberland native who called managing the Orioles his dream job, will be removed about 2 1/2 months into his second full season leading the club.
The team is set to leave this afternoon for a six-game West Coast trip that starts tomorrow night in San Diego.
Bullpen coach Dave Trembley, a longtime minor league skipper who has occasionally subbed for bench coach Tom Trebelhorn this season, has been named interim manager while club executives begin the search for a long-term replacement.
Update [2007-6-18 11:37:26 by duck]:Joe Girardi and Davey Johnson are on the team's wish list. Jerry Manuel's name has been mentioned and there are others available. I'd even throw Jim Palmer's name out there - he wouldn't be afraid to call players out for not performing. OK, maybe not.
