Dempsey, Wedge to interview with O's this week (updated)

Contrary to reports elsewhere, former Cleveland Indians manager Eric Wedge has not interviewed in Baltimore yet.

That will change this week.

Wedge will be in to meet with President of Baseball Operations Andy MacPhail and principal owner Peter Angelos at Angelos' downtown law office on either Wednesday or Thursday.

On June 9, MacPhail traveled to Cleveland and met with Wedge, who was the first to be interviewed for the job that is currently held by interim manager Juan Samuel. This time, Wedge will also share his ideas with Angelos.

Since the Wedge interview, Angelos and MacPhail have talked to former big-league manager and current ESPN analyst Bobby Valentine, who has taken his name out of consideration, and Buck Showalter, who has managed three different major league clubs and also works for ESPN.

On Tuesday afternoon, MacPhail will interview former Orioles player and coach and current Mid-Atlantic Sports Network broadcaster Rick Dempsey at the B & O Warehouse. At least one representative of Angelos' will be there, but the owner is not expected to be present.

Don't read anything into that. Dempsey has a good relationship with Angelos and is familiar with Dempsey's ideas on the team. This will be the fourth time Dempsey has interviewed for the Orioles' managerial job.

"I think if I don't do something now with this organization, it's never happening," Dempsey told The Baltimore Sun earlier this month. "If the next guy comes in and he lasts two or three years, by then I'll be so far removed from being down on the field that it probably would take an act of God to actually make it happen."
