Speaking of coaching staffs, it's probably a little premature to start speculating on the Orioles' 2010 staff when Buck Showalter hasn't even managed a game yet. However, several people I've spoken to said that they'd be extremely surprised if Brian Butterfield, the Blue Jays' third base and infield coach, is not part of Showalter's staff. Butterfield, who coached with Showalter in Arizona and New York, is a very well-respected teacher whom everybody seems to love. Two other names I've heard mentioned as possibilities are former Yankees pitching coaches Nardi Contreras and Billy Connors. Both remain in the Yankees organization in different capacities. Current Triple-A Norfolk manager Bobby Dickerson, who has also worked under Showalter, figures to get some consideration, along with some former Orioles like B.J. Surhoff, Mike Bordick and Bill Ripken.
