Madden: Turmoil at the top and a record at the bottom could mean the end of Buck Showalter in Baltimore

The question is for how long. Above and beyond their horrendous record, the Orioles, once a model franchise in the game, are presently the most dysfunctional team in baseball, with rumors beginning to percolate they might actually have to leave Baltimore if they lose pending litigation with the Washington Nationals over their stake in MASN TV network rights fees. It starts at the top where Orioles owner and CEO Peter Angelos is battling dibilitating health issues and apparently has not drawn up a succession plan, which reportedly has become a grave concern for Commissioner Rob Manfred. As a result, Angelos’ two sons, John and Louis, are running the team but it is not known if they have official authority to make decisions on the future of Showalter or GM Dan Duquette, whose contracts are both expiring at the end of the season.
