Yesterday, the Orioles finalized lengthy contract extensions for manager Buck Showalter and General Manager Dan Duquette. Here's a look at some news out of their joint press conference earlier today..
- Duquette told reporters, including Roch Kubatko of MASNsports (on Twitter), that he would still like to add a veteran starter this winter. So far, it has been a quiet offseason for the O's on the heels of their first postseason birth 1997.
- While Duquette says that there's still plenty of time left in the offseason to make moves, he explained that he's rather happy with what the O's already have in place, writes Kubatko. "We have more work to do..But again, I like this ballclub, I like the depth of the pitching, I like the core players, I like the leadership on the field and I think we have a very competitive team. And we'll have some other opportunities," the GM said.
- The GM also said that he doesn't envision any impact hitters becoming available on the trade market anytime soon.
- Meanwhile, ownership representative Louis Angelos applauded Duquette and Showalter for not making any moves this winter that might jeopardize the club's future, writes Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun.
