Presented in the spirit of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, we give you a primer on baseball's hiring season. Call it Who the Hell is Bo Porter? Eight teams are in the process of filling vacancies at manager, including the Mets, who also must hire a general manager. Tony La Russa and Joe Girardi could cause that list to grow to 10, but their leaving the Cardinals and Yankees, respectively, seems unlikely. This year, though, who knows? If your team didn't make the playoffs, there was a 50 percent chance it switched managers.

The Brian Roberts injury saga continues. Roberts, who has played just four games this season because of a herniated disk, had an epidural injection in his back Friday in St. Petersburg, Fla., Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel said. It's the third such shot he's had since spring training began. After the last two, Roberts rested for a couple weeks before beginning light exercises. Roberts didn't return a phone call Friday, but it's likely that timetable will continue.

The Orioles' search for a new manager is officially underway, with at least two intriguing names in the mix. Bobby Valentine, the ESPN analyst who took the New York Mets to the World Series in 2000 and won a Japan Series title with the Chiba Lotte Marines in 2005, will be interviewed by the Orioles, according to two industry sources. The meeting will happen soon, perhaps as early as Thursday or Friday or early next week. Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail has called several other candidates to gauge their interest, including former Cleveland Indians manager Eric Wedge, two sources said.

Despite interviewing candidates Eric Wedge and Bobby Valentine earlier this week, there is no guarantee that the Orioles managerial search finishes before this season concludes, said club president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail . "I don't know how it is going to play out. We don't know how long it is going to go, too many variables," MacPhail said. "You just made an interim change and then you look at the landscape. I think it depends on your pool of candidates, where you are in the process, how comfortable you are with what your options are."

The Orioles will meet with Buck Showalter about their managerial job Wednesday and are also planning to schedule a second interview with Eric Wedge. However, president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail has still not requested permission to interview a candidate employed by another club. "The first group that we're talking to has experience, has had some success managing and they're not affiliated with any team," MacPhail said. "That's the first group we're talking to. We'll see how we are and how they feel, and then we'll determine from there."

The Orioles ushered in another new era Monday afternoon, introducing their 17th full-time manager -- and third skipper this season -- in baseball lifer Buck Showalter, who took both a humorous and a realistic approach to the challenges he and the declining franchise face in the basement of the ultracompetitive American League East.
