The O's have gone 20-30 since Sam took over, which despite not being very good is a lot better than Mazzilli had done in the weeks leading up to Perlozzo taking over.
I think he deserves more of a shot than just finishing this year, but how good is he really? Then again, will it matter who the manager is? If the Orioles don't field a better team, I'd say not. The players seem to like him.
