After the dizzying two weeks of deals, you deserve a free meal at the diner. We’re happy to indulge you.
While you enjoy some meatloaf and a slice of Felix Pie, let’s talk about the job Dan Duquette has done.
In the past two weeks, he’s dealt away Manny Machado, Zach Britton, Brad Brach, Kevin Gausman, Darren O’Day and Jonathan Schoop, and tried to trade Adam Jones.
In return, the Orioles have received 15 players.
Duquette has been the Orioles’ Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations since November 2011. During that time, the Orioles have made the postseason three times and ended a streak of 14 consecutive losing seasons.
His contract, along with that of manager Buck Showalter, expires at the end of the season. With uncertainty about the team hierarchy and direction, Duquette’s future is cloudy.
The Question is: Do the Orioles’ moves increase your confidence in Dan Duquette? Do you think he’s the right person to guide the Orioles during the team’s rebuild?
