Mazzilli Fired

Recommended Posts

Why Uh-oh? This would be bad?

As in wow, this might be real (I still have my doubts even though John will leave it open).

This will bring out all the optimists in a hearbeat.

Just another quiet day in the life of an O's fan...

But if SB doesn't have the IP address angle figured out with turbo speed as he normally does;

and John throws out that provocative comment...

Just another quiet day in the life of an O's fan.

Was talking to family in LA and they said it is rumored on talk radio to be true but still awaiting official conformation. That's why I looked here to see if it was true?

Poor Maz, he never got a fair shot. :(

All the other coaches better be gone too, Crowley should be responsible for the anemic hitting, Trebelhorn needs to be gone for his terrible 3rd base coaching and Dempsey for his difficulty and meddling. All of them except Elrod and Perlozzo if he's going to be the interim manager.

What drama!

Could Wild Bill really be Angelos teasing us?

The idea of Angelos on an internet message board just doesn't equate.....unless he had a functionary typying away for him while dining on some fine calamari.

Looks like it's for real

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- With the Orioles having lost 16 of their last 18 games, manager Lee Mazzilli was fired Thursday morning and replaced on an interim basis by bench coach Sam Perlozzo.

Mazzilli was hired before the 2004 season to replace Mike Hargrove. He went 129-139 in his first stint as a major league manager, including 51-55 this year.

The Orioles are 4-16 since the All-Star break and have fallen 10 1/2 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the AL East. They spent 62 straight days in first place, but currently are in fourth. They're closer to last place than first.

This is the first time majority owner Peter Angelos has fired a manager during the season.

Perlozzo never has managed in the majors, but he was runner-up to Mazzilli during the most recent search.

Orioles Fire Manager Lee Mazzilli, Sam Perlozzo Named Interim Manager, as reported on the Hangout.

Thank God............. even though I didn't feel that Mazzilli was the main problem.
