Longtime minor league skipper Trembley to lead O's in '08
(Orioles GM Andy) MacPhail extended Trembley's contract through the 2008 season, with a club option for 2009. The announcement came Wednesday, but Trembley received the news Saturday night in Toronto while having dinner with MacPhail.
"I wanted to see how he'd react if we went through a tough skid, and it really didn't happen. The team still played well," MacPhail said. "There comes a time when you've just got to get yourself focused and give everybody an opportunity to get set for '08 as best you can."
