Trembley: the eye of the hurricane
Manager Dave Trembley was asked, as point-blank as I’ve seen it, about having the tunnel approach of taking each day one game at a time despite the constant rumors of his job security.
“My approach never will change. Never,” he said. “I’m a steward of the ship. I’m here to do the very best I can all the time. I’m not thinking about myself, I’m thinking about the team and the organization. You do the very best you can. You don’t get wrapped up in things that you can’t control. That’s the way it is. That’s life. You go with what you got.”
While Trembley doesn’t make it a point to read the newspaper or check this blog (I don’t think), he clearly knows his days as manager of the Orioles are numbered. But I don’t think that’s anything that he would acknowledge or speak about on the record.
I’m not defending Trembley, but I don’t think he deserves sole ownership of the last-place Orioles. He did the best he could in a crummy situation. Still, I undertand the demand (or is it need?) for a change. At this point, a shake up is long overdue.
