Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

September 22, 2009 | Glenn Clark

I will repeat what I said about Dave Trembley this morning on The Comcast Morning Show with Drew Forrester.

Should the Orioles bring back Dave Trembley? I don’t know.
Will the Orioles bring back Dave Trembley? I think so.
Could Dave Trembley say to the Orioles “Thanks but no thanks”? Yes, absolutely.

Dave Trembley (or ANY OTHER MANAGER for that matter given the current state of the organization) CANNOT go into a season as a lame duck. If a manager wants this group of rag tag players to respect him, he has to have the respect of Peter Angelos and Andy MacPhail. A manager left with young and/or undesirable players will NOT earn the respect of his group if the players know management is only employing him “until the team gets good.”

If Dave Trembley were to be told “we’re bringing you back, and you have to earn it next season”, I wouldn’t blame him if he responded “thanks, but no thanks.”

Let’s see what everyone else has to say….
