The search begins anew

The O’s begin the search for a new manager says the Sun:

Those who could receive consideration include three former Orioles: Davey Johnson, who was the last manager to lead the Orioles to a winning record, in 1997; Don Baylor, former Chicago Cubs and Colorado Rockies manager, who currently works for Mid-Atlantic Sports Network; and Rick Dempsey, a longtime coach and minor league manager who also works for MASN.

Other possibilities include Chicago White Sox bench coach Joey Cora and New York Mets bench coach Jerry Manuel. Two former managers that have worked with MacPhail, Tom Kelly (in Minnesota) and Dusty Baker (in Chicago), have said initially they are not interested in the Orioles’ job.

Interim manager Dave Trembley, who is 3-3 since taking over for Perlozzo, is also in the running.

I’d rank the choices like this:

1. Davey Johnson

2. Dave Trembley (for the rest of the season at least)

3. Joey Cora

4. Jerry Manuel

5. Don Baylor

12544577445546. Rick Dempsey

I really don’t want Dempsey as manager, in case you couldn’t tell.
