The Orioles announced Friday that they will bring Trembley back next season, exercising an option that was in the contract he signed last year. The club also added a team option for 2010.
So last year, the O's took off the interim tag and promptly lost 30-3 and stunk hard for the rest of the season. At least this year, the O's are already stinking hard. The O's tacked on an option for 2010 which suggests that Diamond Dave is still viewed with a bit of apprehension by the front office. It seems to says, "We kind of like you... but we're keeping our eyes open in case something better comes along."
