Video: Dan Duquette Discusses The Orioles' Offseason And Outlook For 2016

Recommended Posts

Duquette really high on Kim--said he was a better hitter than the Pirates' Kang who has a sharp eye for the strike zone, will walk a lot, and cover a lot of ground in left field. Rewarded O'Day for being unusually consistent over four years.

One of the most personable and relaxed interviews I've seen Duquette do. Maybe he was relieved that Stan the Fan didn't ask him a single question about the starting pitching :scratchchinhmm:.

Stan???

Second video, 0:40 seconds, He finishes talking about Chen and Wada then says: "But all of a sudden you have the ______ back in play". That word sounded like "Orient-ors" and would make sense in context as he's talking about getting the Asian markets back in play.

Use of the word Orient is not considered PC.

"There are several reasons scholars now avoid using phrases like "the East," "the Far East," and "the Orient," including the exoticism they convey, their association with modern empires, the skewed view of world geography they present, and their tendency to homogenize large, diverse parts of the world as if they shared a single cultural identity."

He said "the Orient is back in play." Orient referring to the region.
