Fans busy “washing their hair” Is it just me, or is the Orioles’ search for a new manager starting to resemble a bad dating experience?
Joe Girardi and Dusty Baker have both stated in some form that: they’re flattered by the team’s interest in them; the timing isn’t right; and it’s just not the right fit.Girardi: In an interview with The Sun yesterday, Girardi, 42, didn’t get into specifics, but said repeatedly that the job just wasn’t a good fit for him right now.
“I was flattered that the Orioles called me,” said Girardi. “It’s a great city, a great organization. I have the utmost respect for Andy. As a coach or a player, I always loved going there [to Baltimore]. I am not going to get into a whole lot, but it just wasn’t the right time for my family. I was impressed. But timing-wise, it just wasn’t right.”Baker: “To me, the Orioles are a great organization and everything, and my passion is baseball,” Baker said. “I want to get back into managing, but only if the right situation comes. Right now, it’s a bit early for me. At this point, I would probably say it’s not the right fit right now.”
Next, Davey Johnson will tell Peter Angelos, “It’s not you, it’s me.”
