    Davey Johnson to manage the Orioles?

    Sounds like wishful thinking, but still...

    If Perlozzo goes, Johnson may return
    Sources say ex-Orioles manager in team's thoughts amid troubles

    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.

    I heard Buster Olney talk about this on Sunday. The O's sent flowers to Davey after his daughter died a few years ago so it seems like bygones are bygones between them now.

    I don't know if I would assume so, Chip. One would hope that even if parting on poor terms, if a former employee lost a child that a former employer would have the heart to send their condolences. This article reads to me like a local reporter who harkens back to the winning past, and is looking for a quick fix to get there.

    Marge should never have gotten rid of him....what's it her business that he and his girlfriend live together out of wedlock?

    Oh well, that paved the way for Ray Knight...

    Perhaps you're right. I usually take whatever Buster Olney says with a grain of salt. But 4 days later there's a second article out saying the same thing. So it's not just some local yokel wanting to go back to the glory days.

    I'd love to see him in Cincinnati and I bet he'd prefer this situation to Baltimore
