07:45 AM ET 07.12 | As Buck Showalter reports swirl in the background, the Orioles appear to be in no hurry to name a manager. It's uncertain how long the Orioles will go with interim Juan Samuel as the club's manager. But he will begin the second half leading the team. There's been speculation that the Orioles could name a replacement during the all-star break ... [but] a source with knowledge of the situation said Samuel will manage the team Friday, when the second half begins against the Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards.

Haven't they been in a holding pattern for about 20 years now?

Even longer. I'd say since about 1978.

Orioles have some talent on that team. Just not enough, not polished enough to compete with 3 of the best teams in baseball...

The Orioles are doomed as long as Peter Angelos owns the team. He is a terrible owner who routinely screws up his team with crappy free agent contracts and poor choices to man the front office. Dan Synder and himself probably drink toegther

I saw a T-shirt with this slogan, but it's so very true: "Wake us up when the Divisions Re-align."
