Juan Samuel, Orioles third base coach What differences have you noticed in the team since a manager change was made? I think [the players] are more focused, and I think they are trying to do something rather than just waiting for something to happen. I think they are trying to force the action and take it to the other team.

Phillies third base coach Juan Samuel didn't get to finish the 2010 season as interim Orioles manager, and negotiations to return him to the O's coaching staff broke down over the winter, but he had nothing but good things to say about the organization Wednesday morning at Bright House Field. "I thought I was heading back [to Baltimore], but it didn't happen to work out," he said. "We couldn't get on the same page. " Still, Samuel said that he was very happy — and grateful to Andy MacPhail — for the opportunity to get some managerial experience, and he bears no ill will torward the O's. He is one of two former Orioles managers on the Phillies coaching staff, along with Sam Perlozzo . Samuel was replaced by Buck Showalter after managing the Orioles to a 17-34 record as the interim replacement for Dave Trembley , but he said he wasn't surprised that the club turned a corner during the final two months of the season.

Former Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel told the Philadelphia media in a conference call Thursday that he "couldn't be any happier, I'm ecstatic" to have signed a deal to coach third base for the Philadelphia Phillies, the team with which he began his big league playing career in 1983. Later, Samuel called it "unfortunate" that he couldn't work out an agreement to return to the Orioles as third base coach on Buck Showalter's 2011 coaching staff, something he was sure 10 days ago was going to happen.

Former Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel is getting plenty of attention from teams with managerial vacancies. Samuel, who guided the Orioles to a 17-34 record this season after he replaced the fired Dave Trembley , will likely interview for both the Pittsburgh Pirates' and Milwaukee Brewers' managerial jobs. Those became vacant when John Russell and Ken Macha were let go. Neither interview has been set up, but Samuel has had discussions with both clubs about his interest in the jobs.

When Juan Samuel was introduced as Orioles manager before the game against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards on Friday night, the change in the dugout elicited a mildly positive response from the crowd. Samuel was officially announced at 6:57 p.m., during pre-game introductions, and he flashed a smile when he was shown on the video board before presenting the lineup card at 7:01 p.m. While the reaction from the stands wasn't overwhelmingly vocal, several Orioles fans shared their opinion on the team's decision to replace Dave Trembley with Samuel before the homestand.

Juan Samuel officially left his post as the Orioles interim manager Monday with no hard feelings or regrets and an overwhelming hope that he'll get another opportunity to lead a major league baseball team under far better circumstances than he has dealt with the past two months. Samuel, who finished with a 17-34 record at the helm, told president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail on Monday morning that he wasn't comfortable accepting a position on new manager Buck Showalter's coaching staff.

Juan Samuel has gone about the business of being the Orioles' interim manager about as well as could be expected. He inherited a terrible team and has gotten it to play a lot less terribly, which might be enough to warrant a more extended tenure at some other time or place. The Orioles have gone 14-20 since he replaced Dave Trembley and just pulled off a compelling four-game sweep over first-place Texas at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Nobody's going to throw a parade for a guy with a .412 winning percentage, but it should be clear to anybody watching that this is a different Orioles team than the one that got poor Trembley fired six weeks ago. So, what exactly does that mean for Samuel, who knew when he started this "audition" that the chances of his getting the permanent job were slim?

After shortstop Cesar Izturis started nine straight games for the Orioles and 20 of the team's past 21, interim manager Juan Samuel decided to give him a break from playing in the midsummer heat, moving Julio Lugo to shortstop and putting Scott Moore in at second base Thursday. "I am trying to take care of all these guys. We have played some long games and it was very humid and hot in Detroit and now we are here for four games," Samuel said. "So we are trying to pick our spots to give these guys off days and keep them fresh."

— Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel was a coach on the 2003 Detroit Tigers' team that flirted with a dubious piece of baseball history, finishing the season just one loss shy of the standard bearer for bad baseball, the 1962 New York Mets. That Mets' team ended the season 40-120, the most single-season losses in baseball history. It took the 2003 Tigers winning five of their last six games to finish with a 43-119 mark. The Orioles' team that Samuel inherited is at least on pace to give both of those teams a run for all-time baseball futility, though don't expect the interim manager to even bring it up with his players.

Hip-hop music thumping in the clubhouse. Players smiling instead of sulking over the post-game spread. The new manager nearly getting a celebratory cream towel in the face from his center fielder. So that's what an Orioles win looks like. It had been so long — after 10 demoralizing losses in a row and a manager kicked to the curb three days ago — that you had almost forgotten. As usual, it was a struggle, a 4-3 win Sunday over the Boston Red Sox in 11 innings that took four hours, 20 minutes in the heat and humidity of a Baltimore June.
