Although the Orioles still haven't decided whether they will fire embattled manager Sam Perlozzo, they have discussed some potential replacements if they do, including one name that harks back to their winning past.
According to two club sources, the Orioles will give serious consideration to bringing back Davey Johnson if Perlozzo is let go during his second full season as manager. Johnson's highly successful two-year run as manager ended in 1997 when he abruptly resigned because of a conflict with owner Peter Angelos after the organization's last winning season.
