Congratulations, Buck on Win #400 With the Orioles

He needs only eight more wins to move past Hank Bauer for sole possession of third place in career wins as Orioles manager (Orioles, not counting the Browns). 518 wins moves past Paul Richards for second behind Weaver, and barring some really bad fortune, the team will get him to that some time next season. Richards of course got to that point having to direct a team that despite being an existing franchise that was made over as if it were an expansion team and completely changing the culture of a team. Different eras, but on some level, Buck's very much had a Paul Richards like effect on this team.

Johnny Oates should never have been let go by the PGA regime.

Cal Sr., got a raw deal from Roland Hemmond.

Mike Hargrove, like Dave Trembley, had no players. They deserved better.

I know this thread is about Buck, but Earl's .583 winning percentage...wow. That's 94.4 wins per 162 game season, over a very long managerial career. It's mind boggling.
If he maintains his current winning percentage, Buck would pass Earl.....in another 2,032 games, or sometime late in 2027. It's safe to say, Earl will remain the all-time winner.

He could never increase his winning percentage to pass Earl before then because apparently the players aren't loyal enough.

    • Pregame members’ lunch!  
    • Mekari down, if he is out we are screwed.
    • It’s one way to go, for sure an interesting one. Henderson has acclimated quickly. To assume that Ortiz and Westburg can adjust quickly is certainly a gamble. I believe they both should become everyday players, but I think easing them in at first to be a better strategy if we want to make a playoff run in 2023. If Henderson is the everyday SS, I believe he’ll wear down some at SS and hurt his production. Less wear and tear at 3B, which will keep his bat in the lineup more. A great athlete, and he’ll get bigger, I wonder if he’ll slow down some as he fills out. Maybe a concern when it comes and he plays SS until then. I had read of concern about his consistency at SS, but I don’t see much of an issue so far. The two errors at 2B notwithstanding. He’s a stud. If you want to put him at SS and trade Mateo, fine, assuming there’s a suitor with a good return. It has to be a very good return.  I am good with then having Ortiz at 2B over Urias, who is much better at 3B. We’ll see how committed to winning Elias is in 2023, and which prospects he prefers to stay and play which positions. 
    • O's going with the most lefty heavy lineup all season vs Javier. Nice first inning for the Vothinator!
