Is Ozzie next?

From what I can tell, there are 2 constants for the O's in the last decade:
1)they've stunk
2)Peter Angelos

I think #2 is the problem, not the management.

Joe Girardi will be manager before the end of the week. Book it.

They have to do something. I am hearing too many fans in my section (121)saying they will not renew for 2008

Despite the record, Ozzie is not on the hot seat, so I don't understand why anyone honestly expects him to be fired.

2 years removed from the World Series and now its his fault?

Now I am not a Guillen fan, but I also don't think this slide is his fault.

If Joe Girardi goes from working for Jeffrey Lorea to working for Peter Angelos, he needs a lobotomy.

Either that or he has late boat payments that may threaten future boat ownership.

There are many others that would fill those spots right up.

Silly Orioles. It sad people are always looking for a scapegoat.

If I'm Joe Girardi, I pass. The Yankees and the RedSox will own that division for the forseeable future, barring any changes(ie salary cap..etc). Unless the Orioles plan on hiring a re-tread or paying way more than they should, they may as well give up.

I guess they were nervous about playing the 2005 World Series champion Chicago White Sox eight times next month.

I just looked up Baltimore's recent history. They won the east by 2 games 10 years ago and then the following year were 35 games behind New York and outside of having a good first half in 2005 have been a non factor.

IIRC, they were the first team in 2005 to play us in a game where we did not have the lead at least once during the game that season.





Ahhh.............the good old days!

It's a shame that yet another good baseball guy is toosed on his ass after getting such an inferior product to work with in BAL.

Nothing against Coop, but Mazzone should be swiped up by the White Sox.

Flanagan should be in the hot seat. His drafts suck, his FA signings suck, his roster sucks, all which means he sucks.

The biggest obstacle is an obnoxious owner. Hasn't he gotten the hint yet? Sell, sell, sell.

We got back at them by stomping them in four straight in Baltimore in the second half. I remember hearing about Palmeiro's suspension during the fourth game too.

Histrorically, Chicago baseball fans who buy season tickets primarily to reserve playoff tickets will often be dissapointed.

Angelos and Wurstz are the co-worst owners in sports.

That brings up an interesting question...just how good is Mazzone. He certainly has the hype but he also had 3 hall of fame pitchers for most of his career to work with. He never developed anything more than a serviceable bullpen in Atlanta; he did nothing in Baltimore - and I think at one point they thought that they had surplus pitching. He did develop some second line pitchers like Avery and Millwood.

The Orioles have to be right up there with the Cubs as far as changing managers in the last 15 years. Seems like Perlozzo is just the latest scapegoat.
