Farrell’s firing in Boston accentuates the longevity Showalter has had with Orioles - BaltimoreBaseball.com

Since Showalter was hired, the Yankees have had one manager, the Rays have had two, the Toronto Blue Jays have had three and the Red Sox are working on their fourth.

Who could have imagined 10 years ago that the Orioles would have one of the more stable managerial situations in baseball?

Of course, Showalter’s contract expires after next season, so things could change soon.

But, this offseason, several teams are looking for a new manager. And the Orioles, again, aren’t one of them.

Really surprised he has lasted this long, because of both the Orioles history of jettisoning managers AND Showalter's history of getting tossed. He has a history of leaving organizations better than he found them, but apparently butted heads with Front Offices

Who would have imagined 30 years ago that the Yankees would have only three managers over the course of 26 seasons?

I'd be so happy with the situation if the Yankees let Girardi go after next year and went after Bucky. He screwed up a playoff game in 1995, but I think his body of work is pretty impressive.
