Orioles manager Dave Trembley could be managing his final game for Baltimore today at Yankee Stadium. The Baltimore Sun reports the team is expected to fire Trembley before the start of this weekend’s series against the Red Sox.
The Orioles are a disappointing 15-38 this season and began the day 20 1/2 games behind the first-place Rays in the AL East — and with the worst record in the majors.
Trembley took over for Sam Perlozzo in mid-June of 2007 and led the team to a 40-53 record before having the interim tag removed after the season. Since then, however, he is 147-229 (.391 winning percentage).
The Orioles begin a nine-game homestand Friday. Record-low attendance at Camden Yards has been a problem this season, due in part to the team’s 9-14 home record.
