I just saw that the Orioles are 6-16 since the All-Star break. That being the case, I thought now is as good a time as ever to once again advocate getting rid of Dave Trembley. I would suggest doing it right now, but there is no point in doing that considering the season is already lost. Also, if they got rid of Trembley they would promote some loser from within the organization to replace him and probably keep that chump into the next season, just like Dave got his job. Regardless, getting rid of him and finding a real manager should me high on off season MacPhail's to-do list.
I've said before that the O's would stink regardless of the manager, but Trembley isn't very good at his job and will have to be replaced at some point anyway and it strikes me that this off season is a perfect time do so. Although I'm less impressed by their talent than some O's fans, the Orioles are a young team that should be showing some sign of improvement or growth or promise. I don't see how anyone but the most optimistic of fans can see any signs of any of those things.
Once again, I also hope this post will resurrect the "Hire John Gibbons" movement.
