Sorry, I’ve been away from a computer most of the day, which really hasn’t mattered because there’s not much going on this weekend.
As expected, the Orioles have settled on Dan Duquette to be their new general manager. The decision came right when Yankees scouting director Damon Oppenheimer seemed to have emerged as a legitimate candidate for the position. The Yankees had a couple of near-misses in the front office this winter, with Oppenheimer and pro scouting director Billy Eppler both becoming candidates for GM openings.
Otherwise, things seem pretty quiet, but if you happen to see MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch, congratulate him on completing the New York City Marathon. I believe this was his second. Nice job, buddy.
