With Brian Roberts resting his surgically repaired elbow yesterday, Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo used an unusual lineup against Boston Red Sox knuckleballer Tim Wakefield. David Newhan started in right field and batted leadoff, and Chris Gomez played second and batted eighth. Center fielder Corey Patterson made only his second start of the season. Newhan rewarded his manager's faith in the first inning, when he reached on an error, stole second and scored on a single by Miguel Tejada.

TORONTO -- A day after getting much of the blame for the Orioles' devastating 6-5 loss to the Boston Red Sox, manager Sam Perlozzo defended his decision to remove Jeremy Guthrie two outs shy of a complete-game shutout and said he hasn't paid attention to fans calling for his job. Speaking before last night's series opener with the Toronto Blue Jays, Perlozzo said he usually doesn't read the newspapers or listen to talk radio when the team isn't going...

My friends, today's homily is one of those life-lesson tales about frying pans and fires. In this case, the frying pan is Orioles baseball, admittedly a decade-long purgatory where the hopes and dreams of Baltimore fans have been stomped on and ground into the pavement like a spent cigarette butt usually by the All-Star break. The fire, however, is Seattle - a veritable baseball Hades this year - where the Mariners have lost about two-thirds of their games, are hopelessly buried in last place in the American League West and are on pace to reach triple digits in defeats.

Orioles interim manager Sam Perlozzo spoke to team officials yesterday, but the conversations didn't bring him any closer to learning whether he'll return in 2006. Vice presidents Jim Beattie and Mike Flanagan have told Perlozzo the Orioles still are deciding what they're going to do. Perlozzo said he also doesn't believe anyone else has interviewed for the position, and no meetings with outside candidates are scheduled. "There's nothing new as of now," Beattie said. "We're still working on it."

After interviewing 12 managerial candidates, the Seattle Mariners trimmed to the final four yesterday, and Orioles bench coach Sam Perlozzo made the cut. Mariners general manager Pat Gillick said Perlozzo, Jim Riggleman, Bob Melvin and Buddy Bell will all be invited back for second interviews next week. He didn't close the door on San Francisco Giants manager Dusty Baker as a possibility. "I wouldn't say [the four finalists] are etched in stone," Gillick said. "But one of these four might be our manager."

Sam Perlozzo wakes up each morning and heads right to the computer. He reads over the transactions on the Internet, checks out rumors and peeks at the updated free-agent list. The good days are the quiet ones. No news is great news because it means the Orioles might still be in the hunt for some of their top offseason targets. But it's those other days that are a bit difficult to shake off, learning that Carlos Delgado is headed to the New York Mets or that B.J. Ryan is packing his bags for Toronto.

It didn't seem likely three weeks ago, but Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo appears to have weathered the storm. Speculation about his tenuous job security has died down, and he received a big ovation from the Camden Yards crowd in the sixth inning Friday night when he got ejected from the game by first base umpire Larry Vanover. That represented a quantum shift in fan opinion since late May, when the message boards and talk-show types were calling for Perlozzo's head after every discouraging late-inning defeat.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- He was the first coach out of the clubhouse after the Orioles' new manager, Lee Mazzilli, made the ritual first address to the team. Sam Perlozzo jogged to the pitcher's mound at Fort Lauderdale Stadium yesterday and stood there all alone under a cloudy South Florida sky. He dropped a bag of balls near the rubber and quickly looked around. Mazzilli was the New York Yankees coach who swooped into the warehouse and wowed Jim Beattie and Mike Flanagan. Yesterday, Mazzilli felt the full effect of his good fortune.

Orioles interim manager Sam Perlozzo apparently will have to wait until after the final game this weekend to learn whether he's returning next season or if the front office will begin interviewing candidates. Having left an organizational meeting earlier in the day that included executive vice president Jim Beattie, Perlozzo and the coaching staff, vice president Mike Flanagan indicated that the Orioles don't have a time frame for making a decision. But the process won't drag into November, as it did when former manager Lee Mazzilli was hired.

SEATTLE -- When the Seattle Mariners' charter plane touches down at BWI Marshall Airport this evening, there will be a homecoming of sorts. Sam Perlozzo, the Mariners third base coach and Cumberland's favorite son, will step back onto Maryland soil for the first time in months. As for the dueling heartbreaking and heartwarming memories, the swirling emotions he is anticipating, Perlozzo doesn't expect to deal with them until he walks into Camden Yards, or perhaps not until pre-game introductions tomorrow night.

The next phase of Sam Perlozzo's baseball career will take him back to Seattle and the third base coaching box. Perlozzo, fired as Orioles manager June 18, will coach third base for the Mariners as part of a revamped staff. He joins pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre, bench coach Jim Riggleman, first base coach Eddie Rodriguez and bullpen coach Norm Charlton as the newest additions. Mariners manager John McLaren reportedly offered the job to Larry Bowa - who instead followed former New York Yankees manager Joe Torre to the Los Angeles Dodgers - before turning to Perlozzo.

Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer remembers one of the first times he charted a game for Orioles manager Earl Weaver in 1969. Starter Mike Cuellar was beating Minnesota in the ninth inning of a close game, but he allowed a leadoff single on his 135th pitch, and the Twins had a few future Hall of Famers due up. So Palmer let his manager know how many pitches Cuellar had thrown. "I said, `Mr. Weaver, that was his 135th pitch,' and he said, `Get your [butt] down to the other end of the dugout and I'll let you know when he is tired,' " Palmer recalled.

The Phillies suffered the 10,000th loss in franchise history Sunday, which never would have happened if they had "Philadelphia" on their road jerseys. The Orioles seem convinced that Danys Baez will be fine now that he's pain-free. He retired all four batters he faced Sunday after throwing a scoreless inning Thursday in his first appearance since coming off the disabled list. "I thought he threw the ball good. He showed a good curveball," catcher Paul Bako said after Sunday's game. "Danys went through a tough stretch, but we all stood by him. He didn't say anything.

The interim manager has brought a spark. He has the players' support. He works the Orioles' clubhouse like a politician, keeping everyone posted on the latest news and lineup changes. Dave Trembley is emphasizing fundamentals, beaming with optimism and unable to hide how proud and humbled he is to have a key to the manager's office. "I'm having fun. I was in Ottawa last year at this time and there weren't this many people at the ballpark," he said, scanning the media contingent that greeted him before the first game of the second half of the season.

The Orioles don't appear to have a mission right now, except possibly to send every player on the roster home by the season finale. So here's a suggestion: Make the organization match the vision Sam Perlozzo has of it. Then, make sure Perlozzo's still part of it, in his present capacity. Before yesterday's game at "Camden Yards" (which this weekend sounds like Fenway), Perlozzo sat in the home dugout and pondered the near-biblical plague of ills that has visited his team - but then gave the sort of glass-half-full, silver-lining assessment of his tenure as manager that could be turned into a commercial if anybody would believe it. It also was the most expansive he's ever been about what he's faced this year and what he might face in the offseason, when his fate will be decided.

IT WAS a simple, sweet moment in a complicated, maddening season. Most of the fans heading into Camden Yards didn't notice. It happened at 7:01 last night, with Tampa Bay hitting coach Lee Elia and the game's four umpires standing at home plate. Orioles interim manager Sam Perlozzo appeared from the home dugout to exchange the night's lineup card. Perlozzo's lineup card. "If before the game you go out to home plate and don't think that's cool, you shouldn't be out there," Perlozzo said with a huge grin.

When Orioles pitching coach Leo Mazzone came here from Atlanta in October 2005, he had two goals: He wanted to win a World Series title with his best friend, manager Sam Perlozzo, and he wanted to retire as an Oriole. Hopes of accomplishing the first evaporated last week when Perlozzo was fired, but Mazzone said yesterday that he still expects to achieve the latter. "The way I look at it now is I love this city, I love this pitching staff and I hope to finish my career here," Mazzone said in his first public comments since Perlozzo's firing.

It has been more than a week since the Orioles fired manager Sam Perlozzo, and the search to find his replacement begins in earnest today when new club president Andy MacPhail settles in at the warehouse. MacPhail and the Orioles' front office thought an extended search wouldn't be necessary when they made an offer to former Florida Marlins manager Joe Girardi last week. But after Girardi turned them down, the club started over with plenty of possibilities and no specific front-runner.
