"I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Peter Angelos and Andy MacPhail for the opportunity to serve as manager for the Baltimore Orioles for the past three years. The results on the field were not what any of us would have hoped for, and I understand that the organization felt the time was right to move in a different direction. While I am disappointed at the outcome, I feel it was a privilege to wear the Orioles uniform each day and I thank all the fans for their tremendous support.

Baseball Astros move ex-Orioles manager Trembley to bench coach Former Orioles manager Dave Trembley will return to the Houston Astros as a bench coach after serving as the third base coach last season, according to the Houston Chronicle. Trembley, 61, replaced Sam Perlozzo as Orioles manager in June 2007 and was fired in June 2010 after going 187-283. A minor league coach for two-plus decades, he managed the Orioles' Double-A team in Bowie in 2003 and 2004, earning the Orioles' Cal Ripken Sr. Player Development Award in 2003, before managing their Triple-A team in Ottawa in 2005 and 2006.

Dave Trembley, who was asked to the lead the Orioles through the early stages of a massive rebuilding project, has been fired less than two months into his third full season as the team's manager. Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail made the announcement today, with the team saddled with a major league-worst 15-39 record and off to the worst start since the 1988 team began 0-21. Third base coach Juan Samuel will take over the club on an interim basis, while MacPhail is expected to begin the search for Trembley's long-term successor immediately after the 2010 season.

Wearing the blue and orange of the visitors and not the black and orange of the home team, Dave Trembley came back to Camden Yards on Tuesday for the first time since being fired as Orioles manager in June 2010. “It's special for me to come here, to see everybody. It's special,” said Trembley, 61, in his first year as the Houston Astros third base coach. “I've seen a lot of the same people. People in the offices, clubhouse guys, the ticket-takers. I've seen all those people.

Former Orioles manager Dave Trembley, who had been a minor league instructor with the Atlanta Braves, has been hired to be on the big league staff of new Houston Astros manager Bo Porter. The exact position has not been announced, but it wouldn't be a surprise if Trembley ended up as Porter's bench coach. Trembley managed Porter in the minors. Tha Astros also hired John Malee as hitting coach and retained Doug Brocail (pitching coach) and Dave Clark (position unspecified). “A manager is only as good as his coaching staff and I'm confident these four will contribute to a terrific staff that can help us accomplish our goals,” Porter said in a team news release.

Fired by the Orioles last June, former skipper Dave Trembley -- or Crazy Uncle Dave as I enjoyed calling him during his last weeks in Baltimore -- has landed with the Braves this spring as their minor league field coordinator. He was recently interviewed by David Laurila about the firing, and Trembley gave excellent insight into what it is like for a major-league manager to get fired. He spoke about getting a phone call on an off-day from ESPN's Tim Kurkjian as he drank a cup of coffee at the Whole Foods at the Inner Harbor, and how national writers in the Yankee Stadium press box were wishing him luck in his future endeavors before his final game as Orioles manager.

There were times in the days after his firing that Dave Trembley woke up in the middle of the night and turned on the television to see whether his former team had won or lost. Those days have ended, but he still regularly watches highlights, glances at box scores and reads game recaps. He also still gets the itch at about 6:45 every evening, the time he used to walk from the manager's office at Camden Yards, through the home dugout and down to the right-field line to shake hands and sign autographs for Orioles fans, young and old. It has been 12 weeks since Trembley was fired about two months into his third full season as Orioles manager.

YOU CAN CATCH HIM on the field or riding his bicycle along the sandy shores of Daytona Beach, Fla. When Orioles' manager Dave Trembley's schedule is not filled with baseball, he is definitely thinking or talking about it. "It's my life," said Trembley. The 56-year-old manager spent two decades coaching in the minor leagues before being elevated last year to the majors as the Orioles' on-field coordinator. Within weeks he became the bullpen coach and last June he was named manager. Trembley says the secret to managing a successful team is communication.

Entering Monday night's series opener against the Twins, the Orioles are a season-high 30 games below .500. Buck Showalter's squad has to go 16-22 from here on out to avoid hitting the century mark in the loss column. Thirty. That number has a lot of significance today. Four years ago, on August 22, 2007 -- the same day the team announced that manager Dave Trembley would return for the 2008 season -- the Orioles endured one of the lowest points in franchise history when the Rangers scored 30 runs on them at Camden Yards . In scoring those 30 runs on 29 hits, the Rangers became the first MLB team in 110 years to score 30 runs in a game.

Asked recently to describe his first year at the helm of the Orioles, manager Buck Showalter searched for the perfect word or phrase. Has it been frustrating? Exhilarating? Draining? A mixed bag? "It's been, 'Under construction,'" Showalter eventually said. Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of when Showalter sat at a Camden Yards' dais and was introduced as the club's newest skipper — the Orioles' 19th overall, sixth since 2003 and third last season, following Dave Trembley and interim manager Juan Samuel.

Buck Showalter doesn't walk on water. We know that now. He's not some sort of magician, either. He can't just wave his arms and fix the Orioles. It's going to take time to do that. And money, which they don't seem to want to spend. And good players, which they don't have — at least not enough of them. I bring up Showalter today because Friday marked the one-year anniversary of the firing of Dave Trembley, which led to the hiring of Showalter and the ushering in of yet another "new era" for this franchise.

A day after he hit a go-ahead, two-run homer, drove in four runs and threw out a speedy base runner to end a difficult inning, Orioles catcher Matt Wieters was on the bench. With a day game Sunday following tonight's contest, Orioles manager Buck Showalter opted to start Jake Fox behind the plate, and have Wieters catch rookie left-hander Zach Britton in Game Three of the series. "I think it's tougher to jeopardize or risk losing Matt than it is to make decisions on whether to play him," Showalter said.

The wait is over. Six months ago, Buck Showalter’s Orioles ended the 2010 season on a tear that left us asking fellow bird watchers on neighboring bar stools and office chairs, “Where has that been all these years?” The anticipation built throughout the winter as the organization got busy with its offseason overhaul. When Buck’s Birds migrated to Sarasota for their first spring training camp under their mean-mugging new manager, Baltimore buzzed about the upcoming season.

Despite being in the midst of their worst losing skid of the season, the Orioles announced yesterday that manager Dave Trembley would lead the team again in 2009. "I think I have a responsibility to be fairly objective about the level of talent the manager has, and the degree of difficulty," club president Andy MacPhail said. "And try to assess the areas the front office, and I, need to improve. The team record is not a 100 percent function of the manager." Trembley, in turn, said he has invited his entire coaching staff back for 2009.

Dave Trembley isn't running a boot camp. He wants that understood. He's the Orioles' manager, not their drill sergeant. But watch how his players march to the back fields during spring training, which begins with the first workout for pitchers and catchers today. Listen closely as Trembley barks commands, sending in motion a collection of pitchers and hitters who are joined together for the common cause. Notice how crisply everyone moves from one station to the next beneath the hot South Florida sun. This is the way Trembley has envisioned his first spring in charge of the Orioles since the 2007 season came to a merciful end and he has been allowed to start planning ahead.

They sat for hours, discussing the mutual acquaintances they've made over many years in the game, their philosophies on building a roster and what had become of the once-proud Orioles franchise. In a secluded cabin situated on a golf course about 45 minutes from where the floundering Orioles were playing a road game against the Texas Rangers last July, Andy MacPhail and Buck Showalter, polar opposites on the surface, found common ground. MacPhail, the Orioles' president of baseball operations whose rebuilding project was bursting at the seams, wanted a manager with a big persona and a lot of swagger, somebody to get the attention of a youthful and underachieving roster and inspire a defeated fan base.

The Orioles cling to the belief that veteran first baseman Derrek Lee will be ready to start the regular season on time, but manager Buck Showalter didn't hesitate when he was asked who would likely open at first base if Lee's sore wrist prevents him from getting enough at-bats this spring. It's the same guy who would have been the designated hitter if the Orioles hadn't signed Vladimir Guerrero, and the same guy who arrived in camp as the likely left fielder after the O's signed Guerrero and Lee. Luke Scott, of course.
