Toronto looking for New President to be Duquette.

Recommended Posts

1)Maybe those who want him gone are the same ones who think his mind has been with Toronto instead of Baltimore

2)Who exactly is negotiating the deal for a player? It can't be Duquette

3)Why can't Toronto just talk to Duquette's lawyer, and not Duquette himself?

3) It's still tampering.

The O's can't go and talk to Boras about if Darvish might want to sign with Baltimore when he hits FA.

An interim GM who knows he likely may not be retained and who may not have Dan's knowledge of the entire system would be more effective?

He may be retained if he does a good job and shows the Orioles he is the man for the job. Theres a lot of motivation in working as hard as he can in the 2015 season.

It's not worth debating. Dan is our GM through 2018 and will act with all interests of the organization, unless the ownership sees more value in whatever compensation they may receive. That's a fact. Jack.

How long did it take to find a GM last time? And that time the search didn't start in January.

Folks do not want to hear this, because it destroys the narative. If Dan has not been approached, how would he know if he were interested? And since he has not been approached. He isn't.

I'm not really well versed with the Twitter thing, but I'm pretty sure Ken deleted my tweet from his conversation. How rude!

Ken can't do that.

Hmmm....it showed up in the conversation, and then it went away. Whatever, like I said, I'm not much of a twit, twat......what do you call one who tweets?

1) I see no reason to believe that any decision will be made on Dan in the near future. Good lawyers are masters at delays. And Peter Angelos is a very good lawyer. They would rather delay then have to make a decision. Just look how long the MASN thing with the Nats has been going on.

2) Andy will not be coming back as GM as long as Buck is here. Andy's methodical way of doing business does not match up with Buck way of doing business. Andy would never have made all the moves with players that Buck wanted to do. Way, way to fast for Andy.

3) If you want to know who Rosenthal's source is, here is a guess.

- Anyone that has lost power since Dan restructured the front office. I can think of a name or two.

- Anyone who might lose power if Dan became President of the O's. I can think of a few.

None of this matters if Peter doesn't want it to matter.

One question? Do the O's lose a significant amount of money if the All-Star game does not come to Baltimore? I would not think so but I am not sure.

    • Context. He hit very well in spells in Bowie, but tended to get hurt and start slowly when he came back. So,  his cumulative stats MAY not be an indicator of his true talent. Additionally, the coaches/management see him and have the modern equipment to better evaluate that question (e.g., his true talent, expected future performance) than "old" stats like batting average in the context of injuries might indicate. With that said, I'm not convinced that his true talent actually matches his original hype when signed by the Dodgers or traded to the O's. Tony's write-ups raise serious questions in that regard, so I don't think you're wrong to want to see some performance before promoting him. But I suspect the people you're arguing with in this thread actually agree about that point.

    • So, by your post above, you agree that the Iglesias trade does fit into what we'd expect Elias to be doing ("building inventory"), correct? As for free agents, I can imagine him wanting to spend BIG in a place where he might not think we have answers during a competitive period. So at SS or 2B, for example, I'd expect he might hold off on a big name guy because he might think we have our own big name guys 2-3 years away, so the paying part wouldn't make sense re: a competitive team. Same for 3B, outfield, catcher and even pitcher. I honestly think that 90% of what he's doing is consistent with what I would expect him to do given a complete rebuild. The one part I agree with is the opportunity to take on bigger contracts in exchange for more prospects. I too wish we'd go that route. I think the next level example of that is signing a guy like Cobb (e.g., more expensive than Iglesias) and hoping for performance so you can trade him. I think the cost/risk equation there gets a little out of hand though. 
    • OH ... 15.5 ... Thanks for helping make my point 🍺
    • I live in a world where you prove you deserve a promotion. Producing at your current role is the indicator. Most players produce less at the majors than they did in the minors....Notice I said most! Analytics helps and I'm happy we have them. But they stats are the stats and why think a guy is ready to do better at the majors than he's done at AA? .262 is pretty mediocre. What is it about Bowie that would lead you to believe that he'd do better at the majors. Scenario ..... its 2021 in July and Diaz is hitting .260/.315/750 at AA. Why do you think he'd be better against MLB pitching? Analystics? I'm pretty sure they are using the same data in the minors now right?
    • I agree with you and Frobby, circumstances rather than any actual numbers threshold. And I think the bolded is the best and simplest way to phrase it. Next man up.
    • But it was my thought!  Lol. Going forward, I will think it and Jerios will post it.
