Warp speed, Mr. Sulu. We’re going home.

Down goes Dave Trembley.

Not much left to say about the Orioles that hasn’t been said before. They’re lousy. Unexpectedly lousy. Lousier than anyone dreamed. And they fired their manager as a result.

As of about 10 am Friday, the players haven’t yet rung in on the firing. But in recent days, as doubts about Trembley’s status have heated up, the players have come to his aid. Adam Jones, Kevin Millwood, Ty Wigginton and Luke Scott all have lamented the unfairness of sport’s time-honored tradition of jettisoning managers when players underperform.

In the weeks to come, we’ll see how much of it was Trembley, who morphed in three years from a tough-talking Captain Kirk look-alike to a Schleprock who looked like he never slept. Trembley’s a baseball lifer who was a long shot to manage in the majors. He saw his dream come true; he led a big-league team for three seasons. Alas, those seasons were miserable and he compiled a record of 187-283. I’m kind of glad they fired him before he got to 100 games under .500.

Taking the driver’s seat of this wreck of a ballclub is Juan Samuel, Trembley’s third-base coach. I like him as the interim choice. Samuel has no patience for dumb mistakes – an O’s specialty the last few years. He’s got nothing to lose, since the team will almost certainly hire a manager with some big-league experience.

The 58-year-old Trembley will go home to Florida, sort out the last few years and get back on the horse. Watch for him in Visalia or Quad Cities or Calgary. The guy’s got some baseball left in him. Just not with the Orioles.

  1. I wish I was the guy in 1st class next to Trembo on the flight home.
    I’d keep the flight attendant busy buying him beers.

    maybe the O’s should just hire, “the Gimp” in Pulp Fiction, people could pointlessly and reasonably beat on him, and unlike everybody else, he’d enjoy it

    “un” unreasonably
