Orioles fire manager Trembley

The Orioles fired manager Dave Trembley after getting off to the worst start (15-39) in the major leagues this season. Trembley was ousted just under three years after taking over the job as Baltimore's skipper in the middle of the 2007 campaign, when he replaced the fired Sam Perlozzo. He went 187-283 as the Orioles manager.

 

Trembley spent more than two decades in the minor leagues before an unlikely journey into the Orioles manager's office. He remained mindful that the job was an impermanent one.

 

"I know that sooner or later someone will come after me and be the manager of the Baltimore Orioles," Trembley told WEEI.com last season. "All we are is a caretaker of the game. We are here to make sure the game is better and pass it on to the next guy in line."

Mashup: More 'imperfect game' fallout

Commissioner Bud Selig said he won't change the finish of Wednesday's Tigers-Indians game, in which Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga had his perfect game taken away by a bad call from umpire Jim Joyce. On Thursday, Joyce made a tearful return to the park amid some applause from supportive Detroit fans, and Galarraga was there to hand him the lineup card at home plate. Writers weighed in with their thoughts about Selig's handling of the situation and how this might affect the expansion of instant replay, among other things. Read more at Friday's Morning Mashup.

Report: Hornets give Thibodeau more time

According to an ESPN report, the New Orleans Hornets decided to give Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau at least one more day to accept their offer to be their head coach. The report says the Hornets offered Thibodeau the position last week, but Thibodeau did not accept by Thursday's deadline, one day after he interviewed with the Chicago Bulls. Thibodeau also reportedly interviewed with the New Jersey Nets earlier in the week. New Orleans is said to be ready to offer its job to Trail Blazers assistant Monty Williams if Thibodeau does not commit soon.

Allen: 'I didn't get a good whistle tonight'

LOS ANGELES -- Ray Allen spent the majority of his night in foul trouble and it clearly frustrated him. "I watched the game from the sideline tonight," he said. "I didn't get a good whistle tonight, what can I do?" The call that bothered him the most was his fifth when he was called for a touch foul on a Kobe Bryant jumper. "I was nowhere near him," Allen said. "Whe he drove, I moved my feet with him and once he went for the shot, I stayed right there." Asked what he felt when he was called for the foul Allen responded: "It's not my night."
