Thread: I am not a Dave Trembley fan...

I am not a Dave Trembley fan...
...but boy do I want to be.
I love this guys attitude...Was just watching the Orioles 30/30 show on MLBN and he is such a likable guy and he genuinely really cares about these players and this organization.
I don't feel he is creative enough with the lineups and drives too many regulars into the ground...and some of his philosophies I really disagree with but if he can be a better manager because his players are better, I really would like to see him here for a long time.

What's worse, with the pressure on this year to get to .500, I think he's going to turn taciturn somewhere around June or so, and the ending of his time here will not be pretty. Alas.

I could listen to him talk about baseball for hours on end. His press conferences after games, especially big wins, are tremendous.

He'd better start "dropping the hammer" on the defense, otherwise he's going to be facing a pink slip before the season ends.
MacPhail's words just weren't for the players today...

As far as his lineup creativity, managing the bullpen, and all the other things he's criticized here for...he'll get better. He's paying attention. The better players (as Rob points out) will certainly help.
2010 will tell a lot about the direction of this club, but I'm confident that it will also reveal that Dave is, in fact, the best and right man for the job.

I love the guy. I love the attitude and his infectious enthusiasm for the game. And while I don't think he has had a lot to work with, I do understand the aspirations of the front office to see some improvement on the field.
The on field decisions, the line-ups, all of those experiments that go wrong happen to every manager in the game. I think he is a bit sharper than some of his critics imply, and I don't think it is easy to win 'manager of the year' awards at any level.
All that said, the Birds need to show they can play an entire season, and not wilt in July and August. The record is not as important to me as the effort. There has to be some evidence the team will perform at their most capable level through those adverse days that face every team in the AL East.
I hope DT passes this test, and hope to see him be at the helm for years to come. He really has done the job he was initially hired to do, and I'm pulling for him to take his game, and the team, to the next level.

"I don't like to lose games in spring training," he said. "More importantly than that, we have to tighten up the defense. You can't play defense like that. That probably concerns me more than the won-loss record. Poor Alberto Castillo had to get eight outs that inning. That's got to tighten up."
