The Orioles have announced they are hiring Leo Mazzilli to be their manager.

Did we lose out on this by not interviewing him? Would we have even wanted him?

Well first off it's Lee.

I don't think so. I heard this guy is quite the a-Courtney Love's old band.
I think in some ways he's like Guillen. Outspoken, younger guy, with no managerial experience. And if it comes down to it JR is going to go with one of his guys.
There is a good story about him being moved to LF and saying he wouldn't because LF is "an idiots' position"
I wonder what CLee thinks about that?
Then again Manny plays LF. hmmmm..........

Didn't Mazzillli manage in the Yanks system for a while? He is older than Ozzie IIRC. Frankly, there isn't much a difference between them, except that Mazzillli has spent time soaking up the NYY genius from Torre, Zim, etc. Meanwhile, Ozzie spent time under a variety of managers including McKeon, Torborg, etc. I don't think we lost out on much not looking at Mazzilli. If we were looking at Yanks bench guys, I'd have rather gone after Randolph.
