I'm slow to judge, but Trembley officially lost me tonight

Recommended Posts

Whether he's a decent game-manager or not, it's just easier to replace the manager at this point. You get a new coach in here and everything starts off new for the guys. You change the whole perspective. That's not to say that they won't still suck, but it has to at least be tried with a lame-duck manager who clearly isn't going to cut it.

Agree. The blame isn't Trembley's it is McPhails. McPhail made a terrible decision to bring him back. One of a long line of bad decsions. Trembley has been consistently bad. I'm beginning to think, so has McPhail.

Just saw DT interviewed and he was asked point blank about the play where someone didn't run out a ground ball. DT said he didn't know what play Thorne was talking about, that they players were playing as hard as they could. He also excused the failure to advance the runners by saying they were trying. Sorry Dave, I'm not buying it.

The deal with Lugo tonight sealed it for me. He knows he's gone.

Even if he knows he's gone, you'd think he'd have the pride to yank Lugo for that kind of lack of effort. But I don't remember ever seeing Trembley hold a veteran player accountable for anything. If that were Pie loafing to 1st, I'm sure Trembley would have been all over him, but not Lugo.

Lugo should be cut and Turner should be handed the job everyday until (if) Roberts comes back. If Roberts does have a career ending injury, we'll need to give Turner an extended audition to see if he's the answer at 2b. No time like the present for that given the O's record. But Trembley will keep putting Lugo's name in the lineup, loafing and all despite Turner's possible upside and the organizational needs. Very frustrating.

Yeah, I just got finished watching that as well. And I agree 100%.

DT comes off as a nice guy. But, when it comes to his job, he is completely feckless.

Yep. Bringing Trembley back was a horrible decision.

They players needed a breath of fresh air and a new voice and strategy.

Instead they got the same stench of losing...

unfortunately I'm finally jumping on the fire Trembley bandwagon as well. I didn't want to put all the blame on him and I still think it isn't entirely his fault. My men's slowpitch softball team could out hit this team and we are all out of shape. The team needs to take responsibility but Trembley at the helm has never worked. He tried restoring fundamentals at the beginning but that got old pretty quickly. He has been here for parts of four seasons and has a record of 174-256. What is worse is that his winning percentage (or should I say, the team's winning percentage) has dropped in each season he has been manager -- including the abysmal current .143 winning percentage.

A change needs to be made. I'm wondering: who takes over? Crowley? He should probably be canned as well. Shelby? Samuel? Datz? Probably not, he is a Trembley guy. Dunn? We see how well the bullpen coach taking over has worked. Kranitz? He has done well with our pitchers. Or do we bring someone in from the outside?

On an unrelated note, I truly hope that BJ Surhoff will become hitting coach in the near future

We need an outsider.

We need someone from outside the organization, ASAP.

    • Guys, I'm no moderator, but the interesting debate about McGregor, et al, has (IMHO) reached critical mass. 
    • Don't have anything on hand.  Not sure where to look or even if there is a trustworthy source for the information.  I'm mostly going be fallible memory of how hard guys threw and how, for the most part, left handed velocity is a couple ticks behind right handed velocity. As for your video, sure he looked good.  You chose a start in which he threw a shutout.  I remember DCab looking really good when he threw that one hitter against the Yankees. My point has been, this whole time, that you can't make it in the majors today with the K rate that McGregor had when he pitched. If you would like to show me guys have sustained success in today's game with a K rate under 4...
    • Can you give us a reference about where the evidence is for how "very few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70s"?     Maybe my statistical search is not looking in the same place.     Yeah, the junk baller who won our last World Series game probably ever.    Just watch the video and honestly tell me you think this guy couldn't pitch today.     
    • So few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70's that I just find it unlikely from a statistical standpoint.  I'm not old enough to remember late 70's McGregor.  The guy I remember in the 80's was more of a junkballer.
    • At the same time, you cited 103 mph as the reason older generation hitters would not do well today.  Exaggeration goes both ways in making a point about which I too was trying to communicate...i.e.  I do believe that many 1980s era players could certainly play well and thrive in today's game.     And that some of the pitching skill sets today might even be more valuable in today's game than they were back then.   Even if the velocity is not the same.         I certainly accept that the game is played differently today, different after the steroid era, and that the athletes playing it perform those aspects of the game differently than their predecessors.   Still haven't found the speed gun ratings on Scott in high school, but I suspect they were pretty good....I might just ask him...   Scott McGregor, El Segundo (Calif.), 1972 Although a teammate of Hall of Famer George Brett (as a sophomore and junior), it was McGregor who garnered more headlines during his three-year career under El Segundo legendary coach John Stevenson. McGregor was a three-time All-CIF selection and was twice named Player of the Year. He was also a Rawlings All-American as a senior. He set section records (which still stand) for career wins (51), career shutouts (20), shutouts in a season (9), and consecutive no-hitters (2). He also set the section record for career strikeouts (which has since been broken) with 496. He was the No. 14 overall pick in 1972 draft by the Yankees, but he was eventually traded to Baltimore. 
    • He's the top, He's the Colosseum! He's the top, A cornerstone of the Te-am! -- Pole Courter, from the musical "Anything Counts"  
    • You asked about velocity right? I love how you keep mentioning inner circle HoF players.  No word on how Frank Torre would do.  By concentrating on the top .1% you are missing out on an important issue I tried to relay to you.  Your average hitter is a lot more dangerous.
