Yankees manager Joe Girardi drew the ire of the Orioles and their fans this weekend for his complaints about the rescheduling of games due to Hurricane Irene.

He's in pinstripes, which means he's not beloved around here, anyway. Then again, Joe Torre seemed to get plenty of respect in Charm City when he managed here against the Orioles.

Yet Girardi heard a smattering of boos Sunday (only a smattering; not enough Orioles fan at Camden Yards for a showering).

I'm wondering if the fans here view Girardi as Enemy No. 1 among the visiting managers – especially now that old favorite Cito Gaston is gone. By the nature of his job, Boston's Terry Francona also is probably in the mix.

What about the White Sox's Ozzie Guillen? We all know Minnesota's Ron Gardenhire has been tossed plenty of times here. Is he close?
