If you recall, there was a school of thought - related here - that the decision to retain Dave Trembley was made before Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail traded away closer George Sherrill and cleanup hitter Aubrey Huff. I don't know whether that was actually the case, but it was logical in the wake of earlier statements by MacPhail that Trembley's future would depend, at least to some degree, on the performance of the team during the final weeks of the season. The rationale: MacPhail is a fair man and it would not have been fair to put the carrot and stick in front of Trembley at the start of the season and then pull the rug out from under him in the second half.

DeMarlo Hale, who had served as the Orioles' third-base coach this past season, is taking a job as bench coach for the Toronto Blue Jays, an industry source has confirmed. Hale, the only remaining unsigned coach from Orioles manager Buck Showalter's staff heading into Thanskgiving, interviewed for the Toronto job earlier this week. The Orioles had extended an offer for Hale to return to the club as third-base coach, but a bench coaching position is seen as a move up. Hale, who was previously the Red Sox bench coach under former Boston manager Terry Francona, joined Showalter's staff this past season after Francona was not retained following the 2011 season.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The practice fields are green and manicured, waiting for the Orioles to take their first steps of 1995. New equipment glistens in the workout room. There also are new uniforms, new batting machines, even a brand-new manager and coaching staff.There's just one problem. Twin Lakes Park is all dressed up for a team that has no place to go.The minor-league Orioles will report to major-league camp beginning today. Pitchers and catchers will begin workouts tomorrow. The full squad -- such as it is -- will be in camp next week.

What the heck was I thinking? At the beginning of 2001, I wrote about three funds that might do well if technology rebounded. I can live with the fact that tech didn't rebound; I'm focused on the long term. However, one of my three candidates was just a bad idea: I mentioned Putnam OTC Emerging Growth because it had been clocked in 2000, yet still had all the great resources of Putnam to draw upon. My mistake was betting on a fund-restructuring project way too early in the game. If you're used to picking stock-turnaround candidates, you might make the same mistake.

You just knew this was coming. You just knew Orioles owner Peter Angelos would look for any excuse to avoid chopping down his precious oak tree.Angelos reportedly decided in August that he would not retain manager Ray Miller. But now, the owner is said to be having second thoughts.Why?Because the Orioles are 19-6 in September.Because they're two games under .500.Because they might actually finish in third place!Don't look now, but the Orioles are closing in on those hated Toronto Blue Jays.

Orioles general manager Pat Gillick shuttled between owner Peter Angelos and manager Davey Johnson last week, trying to broker an uneasy peace that would keep the organization moving in the direction that led to the American League Championship Series each of the past two seasons. He did not succeed.Now, Gillick must hire a new manager, piece together a new coaching staff and re-create a sense of organizational stability in the wake of Johnson's resignation on Wednesday.Whether he succeeds this time depends on how much authority he retains within the Orioles' hierarchy, and that is something that only Angelos can address.

Chicago Cubs Manager: Dusty Baker 2002 record: 67-95 (fifth) What's new: The Cubs have a new manager, a new starting catcher (Damian Miller), another veteran starting pitcher (Shawn Estes), a beefed-up bullpen and several new bats, but they still appear to be undermanned in the National League Central. They ranked 11th in the league in runs scored last year and 12th in ERA, so it would be a very long climb up the divisional ladder to get into position for a postseason berth. On the spot: Baker will bring a new attitude to Wrigley Field, but the novelty will wear off in a hurry if the Cubs look like the same hapless bunch that finished with more victories among NL teams than only the San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers.

He was good enough to be one of the top candidates in the Orioles' wide-ranging search for a new manager, but he was not good enough to remain on the coaching staff.Davey Lopes was told Monday that he would not be part of the new staff that is being assembled by manager Phil Regan, which was more a function of baseball politics than a referendum on his performance during his two years in Baltimore."He did everything we asked him to do," said fired Orioles manager Johnny Oates, who brought in Lopes two years ago to improve the club's base-running technique.
