The return of Dan Duquette

Danny Duquette could return to the American League– apparently, the Orioles are making bird calls at him…

This would be his first MLB gig since getting axed by the Sox.

You will recall he was our fearless leader from 1994 to 2002. He was the guy who nabbed Pedro, D-Lowe AND Tek. So there’s that. AND- he lost Roger Clemens– jusssst before the juice bubble broke. Oh. And just before the Cy Young. And the Pitching Triple Crown. Riiigggghhhttt.

Anyway, looks like we could see him again. In A uniform, at least… Hmmm. How DO we feel about that?


Oh, and Clay Buchholz is going to be on television! Um. For something that’s not baseball.

    I have learned that Dan Duquette is not the bad guy. He was right about Clemens. He brought us more of the championship team than Theo did.

    I don’t see Dan going to Baltimore. That organization as a whole is a joke

    I do not see Duquette taking the O’s job. Unless he’s desperate… really desperate to get back in the saddle. Baltimore is a shell of the team it was when Peter Angelos bought it way back when and won’t be changing until he sells the team. Dan was the mind behind many of those low-budget-high performing Expos teams before he moved on to the hometown Sox. And yes, it was Duquette, not Theo, who built the foundation of those 2003 and 2004 playoff teams. He knew when to cut ties with both Roger Clemens and Mo Vaughn, both being award winners with futures still ahead of them (Clemens began using steroids in Toronto while Vaughn began declining in Anahiem). Duquette may have had better results if not hand-cuffed by the remnants of the Yawkey regime for his time in Boston.

    He’d do well to wait for a different opportunity under an ownership that would allow him to flourish.
