Last-Place Orioles Interview Bobby Valentine And Eric Wedge In Managerial Search

The Orioles recently fired manager Dave Trembley and replaced him with Juan Samuel, but that was intended only a temporary appointment, and the team is now perusing the market to identify intriguing, long-term candidates. Among them: former Indians manager Eric Wedge, and formet Mets manager and current ESPN personality Bobby Valentine. President of Baseball Operations Andy MacPhail met with Wedge on Wednesday, and Bobby Valentine is in Baltimore to be interviewed on Friday.

The Orioles will interview ESPN analyst Bobby Valentine for their open manager's job Friday, according to an industry source.

Andy MacPhail, the club's president of baseball operations, is expected to conduct the meeting in Baltimore.

Valentine managed the Mets to the World Series in 2000 and won a 2005 championship in Japan before returning stateside to work as an analyst at ESPN. Wedge managed the Indians for seven seasons and was voted the 2007 AL Manager of the Year.
