A quick GM update
Here’s what we know about the Orioles’ GM search heading into Sunday afternoon.
Dan Duquette met with the Orioles’ search committee late into Saturday evening. He was not offered a job during that meeting, a source confirmed.
However, he is meeting again today with club managing partner Peter Angelos, among others.
I’ve been saying for a couple days now that the Orioles are very serious about this guy – and I think three straight days of meetings makes that obvious.
So the sense is Duquette will get an offer today. And at least one source has told me that Duquette, who hasn’t been in the big leagues since he was fired as the Boston Red Sox GM in 2002, is eager to get back in the majors and likely would take a deal if offered.
The bottom line is that it appears this will be resolved soon and Dan Duquette will be the next Orioles’ GM.
That said, this process has not gone smoothly, to say the least, so I’m not assuming anything is official until I see Buck Showalter and Duquette sitting next to each other at a Camden Yards press conference.
