Another DD article
Perhaps Duquette has been humbled in his time away from the game. Perhaps he has matured during the past 10 years, realized his errors. He certainly seemed conscious of them in his first days with the Orioles, committed to a more open, honest, and friendly relationship with those around him.
There's always things, he said. Im confident I made a number of mistakes. Im also aware of them. So in an effort to get better and more precise, Im going to work on those things and proceed, do what I do more carefully.
In Boston I was focused on one thing at the expense of some others that I probably should have paid more attention to. But I got another chance
Duquette, though, declined to elaborate on his mistakes. But its well known he didnt communicate well. That led to issues with manager Kevin Kennedy, to the firing of manager Jimy Williams, to hard feelings with players that led to departures.
He was abrasive and smug.
I just think you learn, Kennedy said. I think hes matured. There were times at the end when he wasnt returning phone calls, he had other things going on in Boston. I know around baseball sometimes it didn?t sit well with other GMs that the assistant was calling and not Dan
Im refreshed,Duquette said, Im ready to go. Im ready to get going adding players to help us beat the Red Sox
Seems like the Boston media covers DD more then the Baltimore media. I guess we really are Fenway Park South
