Report: Dan Duquette To Be Named Orioles' GM

According to this tweet from SI.com’s Jon Heyman, the Baltimore Orioles have a new general manager. (No word on whether white smoke appeared above Camden Yards.)

Dan Duquette has agreed to become orioles gm. Announcement tuesday

Duquette has been out of baseball so long that his job-before-last was as general manager of a team that no longer exists, the Montreal Expos. And yes, I know the Expos still exist as the Washington Nationals. But still.

Duquette built a pretty good team in Montreal; after he built a team that might have won the World Series in 1994 if not for the labor stoppage, he was GM of the Boston Red Sox from 1994-2002 and there, had three playoff teams before being dismissed when the John Henry group bought the team.

Duquette isn’t anywhere close to Peter Angelos’ first choice to be Orioles GM; several people had already turned it down before Angelos turned to a man who’s been out of baseball for nearly a decade. He’s got a lot of work to do; the Orioles haven’t had a winning season since 1997 and have lost 92 or more games each of the last six years.
