The Orioles have made a roster move today calling up Corey Patterson (the one and the same Corey from a few years past). It seems like the one who will be sacrificed will be Nolan Reimold. And, I couldn’t like this move any less. Sure Reimold was struggling, but he is a future piece of the puzzle, and he deserved to get at least another 200 at bats before the Orioles pulled the plug on a guy like this. Add to it there are people on this club doing FAR worse then Nolan. Oh…add to it Nolan was on a three game hit streak. If someone were to go back and look at his past six games played they would see a guy with the line of .300 with 1 HR, 2 runs scored, and 2 walks…go figure the Orioles take someone who may actually be coming out of a slump, and place them somewhere else. Add to it Reimold was a patient hitter who worked pitchers when he was at the plate. The Orioles have only one guy in the lineup that can tax a pitcher now (Nick Markakis). This move is being done because Nolan had one bad game last night in some pretty unfavorable conditions. If this was Andy McPhail’s call then I’m just plain disappointed by his lack of research into the situation. If this was Dave Trembley’s decision it wouldn’t suprise me. He needs to be fired, and fired now. I am more then tired of Dave talking in circles whenever he is asked a question in a news conference. I’m tired of seeing him mismange his players constantly. I’m just plain tired of him, and I refuse to give in anymore to a team that puts its blind faith behind a manager who can’t win in the majors, and couldn’t even win in the minors. Oh, don’t let me forget about his attention to detail. We all can see how funamentally sound the Orioles are.
It’s time for a major overhaul. The only coach that stays in my book is Kranitz. The rest…See ya don’t let the door slam on your way out. Or let the door slam, I don’t care. Just as long as Dave Trembley, and even Terry Crowley are both terminated.
How much do people want to say the odds of the Orioles scoring more then 1 run this game? I’m going to say 10-1. This team is lead by the most worthless manager in the major leagues. Dave may be worse then Kansas City’s Trey Hillman who is beyond bad. I guess we can see a common denomenator between Kansas City (bad team), and the Orioles (bad team). They each have horrible managers in place. I can care less how great a man Dave is, when it comes to baseball Dave don’t know (but Bo knows, that’s for sure).
If I have any fans who are loyal readers, I apologize. I have to take a break from this team. They have finally pushed my buttons in such a fashion that I can barely even think of writing about them. I’d rather be kicked repeatedly in my man parts then have to listen to anything else regarding this team and how poorly run they are. Option Nolan Reimold…sure…HORRIBLE. A goat could run this team better then Dave Trembley could.
Paging Andy McPhail:
If you want to make a statement, FIRE YOUR MANAGER. Or, you could always sacrifice Luke Scott instead. See, those moves would make sense. Optioning Nolan makes NO SENSE. Andy, quick words of advice for you:
Remove head from sphincter
Look around, the sky is blue and the grass is green!
Oh, and fire Dave Trembley. K Bye.
