Buck Showalter The Latest Possibility To Take Over As Orioles Manager

Already having interviewed former big league managers Eric Wedge and Bobby Valentine, the Orioles are now looking to talk to another of the same ilk:

Former Yankees, Diamondbacks and Rangers manager Buck Showalter, now an analyst with ESPN, has been contacted by the Baltimore Orioles about their managerial position, a source confirmed Wednesday.

Showalter is expected to meet with Orioles officials in less than a week. He had no comment on the matter.

Showalter was voted AL Manager of the year in 1994 with New York, and in 2004 with Texas. He also spent three years with the Diamondbacks, leading the second-year team to a 100-win season in 1999.

It's unclear when the Orioles intend to name a new manager, and Andy MacPhail says this process could take the whole season.
