Best Oriole

Buck Showalter

Yeah, it's only been a month and a half, but we like what we see in the O's new manager. He commands respect. He comes to games prepared. He has a strategy. He has tactics. He's a quote machine. He honors the game, the tradition, and the fans. The guy even took number 26 on his uniform#8212;the number worn by his friend and mentor, former O's manager Johnny Oates. Class. We haven't seen this in some time, and we like the Bucky ball. All due respect to Dave Trembley, who did the best he could, but he was in over his head, and it's all too obvious from the way the Birds have been playing these last few weeks. We'll be watching and listening through the season, hoping we can play spoiler to the AL East teams above. And there's next year. For real. This time. We hope.
