Give Sam P. a chance
I believe Sam can make this team once they are healthy. Since the begining of the year he has solved how to use his bullpen-the rest will come in a week or 2. chill the o's are 7-7, .500 there is still a lot of baseball to be played.
PS:This post is in refrenece to the many people who believe Perlozzo is a bad manager. Remember Perlozzo still doesn't have a complete season as a Orioles manager yet.

Bullpen has been used pretty decent.
The bench has NOT. Bynum, Bako, and Castillo? Perlozzo is an idiot.

The man has extremely capable, hard hitting solutions in the minors, yet keeps fast runners with no batting skill or base running instincts whatsoever, a catcher who can not catch a ball for the life of him (Bako) and can't hit in the process, and another catcher who just is atrocious at the plate.

You either got it or you don't. Would you want a doctor, learning on the job my his many mistakes, operating on you?

lackluster bench at the moment. Without a successful season of wins to back up his thought processes, I'll probably remain unconvinced.

I guess this goes to prove that just because you can manage successfully in the minors doesn't mean you can in the majors.
Perlozzo became a manager in the Mets minor league system following the end of his playing days. In 1982, he managed the New York-Penn League Little Fall Mets to a 38-38 record, which was good for third place. The Mets promoted Perlozzo in 1983 to manage the A Lynchburg Mets, where he went 96-43 and won the Carolina League title and was named Carolina League Manager of the Year. Again, in 1984, Perlozzo was promoted to the AA Jackson Mets where he finished 83-53, which was good for first and won the Texas League crown and was named Manager of the Year by Baseball America. Success continued for Perlozzo and the Jackson Mets in 1985, as he led them to a 73-63 record which was another first place record and another championship, which was Perlozzo's third straight. This earned Perlozzo a promotion to the AAA Tidewater Tides in 1986, where he led them to a 74-66 record which was good for 4th place. Perlozzo ended his minor league career with a 364-263(.581) record in five seasons.
Maybe we should send him to the Tides?

Everyone here acknowledges that Ramon is a tough loss to absorb, but SP is showing that he does not know how to use the tools he has been provided.
I don't think anyone could say with any certainty that a different manager would have won more than the 7 actual wins, but I think it is clear that SP has failed to put his team in the best position to win multiple times already this season.
