`Distractions,' losing leave O's in angry mood

June 20, 2007|By Jeff Zrebiec | Jeff Zrebiec,Sun Reporter

SAN DIEGO -- Brian Roberts endured it with the firing of Mike Hargrove, then Lee Mazzilli and now Sam Perlozzo, three managers he liked and respected. So when he was approached by a small group of reporters in the visiting clubhouse at Petco Park and asked about Perlozzo, he quickly grew agitated.

"I've seen managers come and go here," said Roberts, who has been with the Orioles for parts of the past seven seasons. "To tell you the truth, I just want to come here and play baseball. That's all. I am tired of dealing with the manager situation. I am tired of dealing with all of this. It's hard enough to go on the field and play without all the distractions."
