Will Buck Showalter be the next manager for the Orioles?

In the three weeks since Dave Trembley was dismissed as manager of the Baltimore Orioles there has been no shortage of familiar names bantered around as potential managerial candidates. However, with the withdrawal of former Mets and Rangers manager Bobby Valentine from the list and the seeming reluctance to pull the trigger on former Diamondbacks, Rangers and Yankees manager Buck Showalter, Baltimore seems to be no closer to having a permanent skipper today than they were during the final weeks of the Trembley era when it became apparent that the likable manager was not long for his job.

Considering that the Orioles are now 24.5 games out of first place in the AL East, there clearly is no need for urgency to bring in a manager who can right the ship and get the team back in the playoff chase.
