Looking back on the first year as Orioles' skipper

With Buck Showalter having managed just over a full 162 games with the Orioles, the O's skipper took some time with MASNsports.com's Dan Kolko to look back on his tenure with the Birds so far.

More than anything, while the starting pitching hasn't always performed as well as he would have hoped and there have been some injuries along the way, Buck said he's been proud of the effort that his players have delivered on a day-to-day basis, through the good times and bad.

The O's skipper also touched on whether there was any acclimation process when he first came aboard in Baltimore, and how he plans on balancing the goal of winning games and finishing the season strong with wanting to see what his younger players can do in the major leagues.

If you have a question for Buck, feel free to drop it in the comment box below, and the Orioles' manager might answer it in his next video blog.
