Ok. So the Orioles come into their first off-day since Opening Day with a 2-14 record. Worst in the majors. The O's are getting little to no runs in each game, and that includes games against pitchers like Justin Vargas and Dana Eveland. It's absoutely terrible and I for one am fed up with the way Trembley is running this team.
So, after the M's swept up last night, Trembley decided it was time to vent. Well Tremb, your not the only one.
"I've been in a position where I'm a really nice fella and I'll cover. I'll get questions point blank and I feel like I'm a damn presidential press secretary sometimes instead of telling it what is it. I have to smooth it over," Trembley said. "I'm not smoothing it over anymore."
Really Dave? Maybe this should have started, oh say, a frikin week ago. Teams go through dry streaks. You know, a maybe 5 game period of bad hitting or bad pitching, but not like this. The hitting has been there for 3 games so far that I've seen, and in those games the O's are 2-1. This isn't just any dry streak, its a slump in the middle of the desert. So Dave, Stop acting like such a nice guy. Do that when we are winning, this isn't little leagues. In fact, it's probably the farthest from the Little Leagues considering we are in the hardest damn division in baseball. Get your ass in gear, and motivate these guys.
"The whole thing has gone totally different from what we want. It hasn't been acceptable," Trembley said. "I'm very patient but I will tell you the truth. I didn't have anyone come up to me afterward and disagree with what I said."
Of course it's far from what we want. What we want is to be within striking distance of .500 baseball. What we want is some hits to support these great outings by our pitchers, and they get screwed because they give up 2 or 3 in a game. At the rate we are going, Guthrie and Millwood will become the first 20 game losers to ever have ERA's under 4. I too am a patient person, I kind of just laughed off the first 10 losses, now it's getting very, very annoying. I mean, you have 27 outs to work with. In those 27 outs, you can only manage 1 run and a handful of hits?
Look, unless we go out in this series against Boston and New York that includes 12 games against them total and we become a wrecking ball, I seriously believe it's in MacPhails best judgement to fire Trembley, and fire Crowley. I personally blame them for this start.

The first priority for the Baltimore Orioles going into the off-season was finding a veteran starting pitcher. It took merely a week, and Andy MacPhail found his guy. During the Winter Meetings, MacPhail dealt reliever Chris Ray and Ben Snyder to the Texas Rangers for Kevin Millwood and $3 million dollars.
Some may ask what MacPhail sees in Millwood, and as too why the O's need him. Well, the O's were headed into the 2010 baseball season with a very youthful pitching staff, including Brian Matusz and Chris Tillman, two former top prospects. Millwood not only delievers that expierence the staff has lacked in recent years, but also a solid innings eater that will take away the wear and tear of a young bullpen. Millwood also becomes the teachers in a situation where he was once a student. A dozen-plus years ago, Millwood grew up with the Braves in a rotation that was anchored with the names of Maddux, Glavine, and Smoltz.
The lessons he once learned with them he will now carry over to guys named Matusz, Tillman, and Bergeson. Even if Millwood has an unsuccessful year in the stat lines, MacPhail didn't truely give up much for him. MacPhail dealt away Chris Ray, who was a fan favorite here in Baltimore for a few years, surfacing from the minors as the potential future closer. In 2006, Ray posted 33 saves in 38 chances, but before too long his career went downhill on a direct slant. He went through Tommy John surgery and in 2009 made his official return, however he ran into some trouble, posting a 7.24 ERA in 46 appearances.
All in all, MacPhail didn't get Millwood just for the stats. It's what lies beyond the boundary of stat and in the area of teaching. Millwood is the guy that MacPhail knew the O's needed, and he got his guy much like he has most of his career as the O's GM. With Millwood anchoring the staff, the potential for Tillman and Matusz will go up, as well as the potential for many happy Orioles fans all across the country.

Move over Superman (or Tim Tebow to some), There is a new Man of Steel.
His name is not Colt McCoy. His name isn't Tim Tebow. His name is Toby Gerhart, and he is a member of the Stanford Cardinal.
You may be wondering, 'Whats the big deal about some guy from Stanford?'. I'll tell you the big deal. It's that this guy (and a few others) have turned a Stanford team into a serious contender for the Pac 10 title.
Gerhart didn't just rise to the top as a senior at Stanford, he rose in High School. At the time of his High School career, he totalled a historic 9,662 yards, which would rank 3rd at the time in the American High School football record books. Stanford pounced on Gerhart, and he wa ranked the 40th best running back in the 2006 Recruiting Class.
During his Junior season at Stanford, Gerhart broke the Stanford season rushing record, amassing 1,136 yards and 16 touchdowns. In 2009 so far, he has shown that he can be a workhorse, and his body build shows it. He stands 6'1", 235 lbs and reminds many of a typical fullback, however he can hold his own carrying the ball. Through 10 games in 2009, he has 262 attempts. In 2008, he had just 210. The thing is, he has shown absolutely no signs of slowing down.
In those 262 attempts, he has ran for 1,395 yards and 19 touchdowns, both also career highs. He is averaging 5.3 yards per carry, and the lowest average yards per carry in a single game was 4.4 against the Arizona Wildcats, but he still ran for 123 yards against them. he was held under 100 yards just twice, against Wake Forest and Oregon State, but in both games he only ran a total of 38 times. Thats as many as he had in a single game, against Oregon.
The workhorse load also proved big for Stanford in 2009 so far, when he ran for atleast 25 times in a game, the Cardinal are 5-1. Lets see where his stats are located in the nation among FBS running backs.
Attempts - #1, 262 (34 more than second place Daniel Thomas of Kansas State)
Rushing Yards - #3, 1395 (1st - Ryan Mathews, FSU ; 2nd - Donald Buckram, UTEP )
Touchdowns - #2, 19 (1st - Ricky Dobbs, Navy )
And when it comes down to decision time for the Heisman Memorial Trophy to invite several members of the college football world to New York for one of the Greatest Awards in Sports, Toby Gerhart by far should be receiving an invite, if not the award itself.

When Koji Uehara was signed by the Baltimore Orioles in the off-season, not many knew that he was to become the first Japanese-born Oriole player. Ever. he also brought along hope for a better season and a better pitching rotation. So far, only a month and a half into the season, he has. Since his implosive game against the Texas Rangers, his earned run average has dropped off.
