Is anyone else surprised that the Orioles already decided to bring back Dave Trembley as manager next season, rather than wait to see who becomes available or expresses interest? (I'm not saying they should have waited. Just wondering if you're surprised.) The Orioles were 29-25 under Trembley before yesterday. Surprised? Watching another episode of The Bronx Is Burning on Tuesday night reminded me how former Oriole Paul Blair had the winning hit in Game 1 of the 1977 World Series, after failing to lay down a bunt.

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.

Do we have definitive proof that Dave Trembley spent the previous 22 years coaching and managing in the minor leagues? Are we absolutely sure he wasn't a motivational speaker instead, or a traveling preacher or a shrink or a host on the Home Shopping Network? Not to demean his baseball credentials in any way, but every day Trembley spends as the Orioles' interim manager (not in official terms, but in practical ones), the more his message of respect for the game, accountability and passion seeps in. The results on the field tell you that the players are buying it. The turnout yesterday morning at Camden Yards for a season-ticket-holder promotion - Trembley and Andy MacPhail did an hour-long Q&A atop the dugout before the game against the Chicago White Sox - tells you the fans are buying it, too. It's tough to say which group is the tougher sell, but it really might not matter.

Two years ago Tuesday, Tommy Hunter and Chris Davis received a set of phone calls in a Toronto hotel room: They were traded from the pennant-chasing Texas Rangers to the last-place Orioles in a move that would help alter the course of a franchise and their careers. "My biggest concern when I was traded over here was whether I was going to be part of a winning team," Davis said Tuesday. "I think since I've been here - not because I've been here solely - we've had a lot of winning.

June 19, 2007: Trembley's debut as interim manager The Orioles suffer their ninth consecutive defeat, a 12-6 loss to the San Diego Padres, a day after naming Trembley interim manager when Sam Perlozzo is fired. "For me, I'm very aware of who I am, what I am and where I've come from, managing in the minor leagues a long time," Trembley said at the time. "In my wildest dreams, I could never imagine getting the opportunity to manage the Baltimore Orioles." Aug. 22, 2007 : O's remove the interim tag, and get crushed Before a doubleheader with the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards, the Orioles remove the interim label from Trembley's title and officially announce that he will return as manager in 2008.

Andy MacPhail might have struck a blow for organizational stability Friday when he chose not to change managers in the middle of his rebuilding program, but the message he sent to the fans by picking up Dave Trembley's contract option remains a bit unclear. MacPhail cast the one-year rollover as a reward for a job well done, even though the Orioles are about to complete one of the worst seasons - in terms of wins and losses - in the history of the franchise. He has given his manager another opportunity to grow along with his young team, despite the time it took Trembley to get everyone pulling in the same direction in the first half of the season and the meltdown he could do little about at the end. So, now that we know who will be the manager next season, it would be nice to know what that means.

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.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -The Orioles really don't need any more pitching suspense, but closer George Sherrill is providing some anyway. Sherrill came on in relief of Hayden Penn on Thursday against the Florida Marlins and allowed four straight base runners and two runs before getting the final out of the third inning, which only added to a body of exhibition work that might have manager Dave Trembley wondering whether to stick to his promise to start the...

With the Orioles' final 16 games against teams with winning records, including a three-game series against the Minnesota Twins, manager Dave Trembley held a brief meeting last night, before the scheduled game against the Twins was rained out, to remind his team of the importance of staying focused and maintaining intensity during the season's stretch run. "I think there is an obligation when you are playing contending teams to bring your game up to...

There's a perfectly logical explanation for the way the Orioles have collapsed during the week or so since the team took the interim tag off manager Dave Trembley, but it's not what you think. The obvious factors - the struggling bullpen, the thin roster, the late-season assimilation of unproven players - might seem to be reasons enough for the ugly six-game losing streak that includes one of the ugliest losses in modern baseball history. And that might be the end of the story if not for the odd timing of this odd tailspin.

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.

Five months after being fired by the Orioles, former manager and baseball lifer Dave Trembley has landed the minor league field coordinator position with the Atlanta Braves, according to an industry source. He is also expected to supervise the instruction of coaches and players throughout the Braves organization. Trembley, who has been out of work since he was fired by the Orioles on June 3, could not be reached for comment. Trembley, 59, spent eight years with the Orioles organization, including nearly three full years as manager, before he was dismissed after the team started 2010 with a 15-39 record and was buried in last in the American League East.

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.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE June 4, 2010 ORIOLES NAME JUAN SAMUEL INTERIM MANAGER The Orioles today announced that third base coach JUAN SAMUEL has been named as the club's interim manager, replacing DAVE TREMBLEY. Samuel will be introduced as interim manager in a press conference today at 2:30 p.m. in the Auxiliary Clubhouse at Camden Yards. Samuel, 49, is in his fourth season as third base coach on the Orioles' coaching staff and 27th year in professional baseball. Prior to joining the Orioles, Samuel spent the 2006 season as manager at Double-A Binghamton in the New York Mets system, leading the team to a 70-69 record and second-place finish in the Eastern League.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dave Trembley predicted early in spring training that catcher Ramon Hernandez would enjoy a bounce-back season, and nothing that has happened this season has changed the Orioles manager's mind. Hernandez is hitting .143 (4-for-28) with one home run and four RBIs. He did drive in the Orioles' lone run with a single in a 3-1 loss to the Texas Rangers in Game 1 of yesterday's doubleheader. That broke an 0-for-13 slump. Entering the game, all three of Hernandez's hits came in last Friday's victory over the Seattle Mariners.

Dave Trembley is about to complete his first week as Orioles interim manager, and what's not to like? The players seem to have responded to his upbeat leadership style during the interleague trip out west that ends today. The club, in spite of the injuries that recently sidelined Miguel Tejada and Erik Bedard, entered last night's game riding a modest winning streak. It might seem logical at this point for new club president Andy MacPhail to slow-play his search for a permanent manager and see if the right man for the job was here all along.

"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.

When Dave Trembley took over the Orioles as interim manager in June 2007, he didn't know how long his tenure would last, but he vowed to return a once-proud franchise to respectability. Trembley, the baseball lifer who toiled in the minors for more than two decades, kept the post much longer than expected, lasting until late Thursday night, when President of Baseball Operations Andy MacPhail mercifully cut him loose in the midst of an eight-game losing streak and a majors-worst 15-39 record.
