Dempsey talks about Orioles managerial interview

As expected, Orioles representatives met with Eric Wedge and Rick Dempsey at Peter Angelos' downtown law offices Thursday to talk about the club's managerial post.

Dempsey, the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network broadcaster who previously played with and coached the Orioles, met this afternoon with president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail and the team's general counsel, H. Russell Smouse.

Angelos was not present for the two-hour meeting with Dempsey, who has interviewed for the position on three previous occasions.

"Everything went great, I am very happy with it. It was definitely a legitimate interview. I felt it went better than any other interview I have ever had," Dempsey said. "Even if I don't get the job, I think they listened to a lot of things I had to say about the ballclub and getting it back on track. Whoever they pick, hopefully will use that information to help the team get better."

Dempsey said he wasn't given an indication of when a replacement for Dave Trembley will be named.

"There is no timetable on this thing. They have some more people to go yet," Dempsey said. "They will keep me informed."

Wedge, the former Cleveland Indians manager, met with Orioles representatives Thursday morning. It was his second interview; the first was with just president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail in Cleveland on June 9.

The purpose of this one, in part, was for Wedge to meet Angelos.

Wedge could not be reached for comment.

MacPhail, who as a matter of policy will not discuss specifics of the meetings, said: "We had two interviews. As always, they are informative and insightful. It's an interesting process, not one you want to go through on a regular basis. It's an interesting process. That's about the extent of it."
