Showalter still deciding on coaches

Because during the middle of the ALCS opener you are consumed with worry over the Orioles' coaching staff, we bring you this update: There's no news.

The Baltimore Sun reports that manager Buck Showalter, hired midseason, on Friday was calling the coaches he inherited and telling them he's still deciding what he wants to do with the staff for next season. (How exactly does that call go? "Uh, hey, it's Buck. Just calling to tell you I don't know whether you still have a job." Awkward.) He had told the coaches at the end of the season that he expected to make decisions within a few days, but the process is taking longer.

The Sun points out that the holdup might be the Blue Jays' massive managerial search. They are apparently interviewing everyone who has ever worked in baseball, and that includes two men who formerly coached with Showalter that he might like to hire: Jays third base coach Brian Butterfield and deposed Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu.
