Dave Trembley could be gone Thursday or Friday

Jun 2, 2010, 11:15 AM EST

That’s The Baltimore Sun’s Peter Schmuck’s assessment anyway.  Worth noting that the O’s don’t have an offday until Monday, but I suppose there’s no law that says a manager has to be fired on an offday.

Schmuck, who has not been a vehement Trembley basher by any stretch, says that “the job is eating him alive” and says that Trembley should be “put out of his misery.  He even quotes the execution scene from the movie “Breaker Morant.”  Which, while shooting Schmuck up about ten thousand percent in my book because that movie is eight shades of awesome, is perhaps a bit melodramatic for an Orioles manager.

At any rate, when columns like this one come out it’s not a matter of if. It’s a matter of when.

    By Dave Trembley you really mean William Shatner.

    This is the sound of me checking to see if comments are working.

    This is the sound of me checking to see if I still deserve my job.

    MacPhail is NOT the problem with this team. On-the-field winning at the major league level is always a lagging indicator of the overall health of a franchise.

    Do the O’s have a West Coast trip scheduled soon? That’s the way to do it–let the condemned fly out, then fly there one game in, give him the axe, and make him fly all the way across the country.
    Oh, it’s been done? Sorry.
    Trembley has been the good soldier. I hope that when he’s fired, it’s done with a little more dignity and class than that.

    This is the sound of my evil laugh, knowing I CAN’T be fired!! Buwhoahahahahahahahahaha!

    They need to fire Dave Trembley and replace him with Cal Ripken, Jr. Cal will get rid of people that aren’t doing their job up to par and get people that do. Greedy cheapskate Angelos probably doesn’t want to pay the price for what Cal will probably do, which is clean house, so that is probably why Cal hasn’t been offered the manager’s job.

    Cal has said publicly that he doesn’t want to be a manager, he wants to be a part of the front office. The last winning manager the Orioles had is available so if Angelos can put his ego aside for the good of the team then he should be calling Davey Johnson.
