Perlozzo Fired For Being Worse Than Yankees    

It's official.  Sam Perlozzo's out.  The O's suck, and it's not like they're that much worse than they should be, so it's kinda meaningless.  But he clearly wasn't doing anything for them.  And he presided over the Mother's Day Massacre, one of the worst managerial meltdowns this side of Grady Little.  I'm not thrilled to see him leave my division, but this is nonetheless a smart move.

Here's the interesting thing.  Perlozzo makes two Italian managers in a row to be fired by the Orioles, with a third (Joe Girardi) as the likely successor to the chopping block.  A-ha!  The real story behind these hirings and firings has become all too clear.  Peter Angelos, of Greek heritage, enjoys hiring Italians, a.k.a. Romans, for no reason other than firing them and causing them public humiliation... as revenge for the Battle of Cynoscephalae.  How petty is that?  Seriously, dude, grow up.  It was, like, 2200 years ago.  Get over it.  I guess racists will never cease to outdo themselves, will they...

  • Bravo on the reference, but let's remember that none of this would have happened w/out Cassander betraying Roxane & baby Alex IV, ending Alex the G's line forever, and plunging the empire into (yes, inevitable) civil war.
