Re: Perlozzo Fired in Baltimore
Mazzone specifically came to the O's to be with Perlozzo who is one of his best friends in baseball. More importantly is the hiring of McPhail--the O's already have Duquette and Flanagan as Vice-Presidents--they were co-GM's and now I believe Flanagan is the one who is basically the traditional GM. I'm wondering if they will be gone soon as well?
The problem in Baltimore isn't the manager or the front office--it's Peter Angelos. He's been making life very tough for all his GM's for nearly a decade, last winter he vetoed a trade of Brian Roberts. Until he's gone, I don't think the Oriole way will make a comeback, Girardi or no Girardi.
