Bench coach Perlozzo named interim manager
ESPN.com news services

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Baltimore Orioles fired manager Lee Mazzilli on Thursday with the team mired in an eight-game losing streak and still reeling from Rafael Palmeiro's positive drug test.

The Orioles have made bench coach Sam Perlozzo the interim manager for the remainder of the season.

The announcement was made just two hours before Baltimore's game at Anaheim.

Coming into Thursday, the Orioles were 51-56 and 10 games behind first-place Boston in the AL East.

Mazzilli compiled a 129-140 record in one and a half seasons with the Orioles, having taking over as manager on Nov. 7, 2003.

Perlozzo, 54, is in his 10th season with the Orioles, spending his first five as third base coach before becoming bench coach in 2001.

Perlozzo is in his 19th season as a major-league coach, having also served on the staffs of the New York Mets, Cincinnati Reds and Seattle Mariners. He was a manager in the Mets system from 1982 to 1986 and compiled a 364-263 record, winning three league championships and never having a losing record

They're only 10 games back. I bet he knew about the roids or something. That's too much of a coincidence.

Only ten games back, but they are 5 games under .500 and on a 6 game losing streak.

10.5 back...and 4-16 since All-Star. They were first place and 3 up about a month and a half ago. Next to last and 10.5 out is a long way to fall from First and 3 up in that span of time.

He just wasn't getting the job done.
