ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Orioles manager Dave Trembley sat down three of his regulars last night, temporary adjustments made to revive his lineup. He held a closed-door meeting with his players before batting practice, herding them into the video room across from his office. Never claiming to have all the answers, he merely tried to find a few solutions.

But what is a manager supposed to do when his starting pitcher can't get out of the second inning and his team falls behind by eight runs in the amount of time it takes to count heads in the meeting?
