I hope this note finds you well! I am writing as a concerned fan. I heard you brought in Dan Duquette to replace Andy MacPhail as president of baseball operations. While I think that is a brilliant move, I have just one question for you: Can you please let him do his job?

I’ve never really asked you for much, but this one time I am asking you to let him get the Orioles pointed in the right direction, a direction we haven’t seen since 1997.
It’s not like my request is that off the wall. I’m not asking for your first born or a million dollars or even free tickets. I’m just asking you to let Duquette to come in and do what he does best: run a baseball team.

Yes, I know he hasn’t been in the majors since he was fired by new Boston Red Sox ownership in 2002, but he was the main reason that team broke their long curse. “But I thought Theo Epstein was the GM when Boston won,” you ask? Technically he was the active GM when they won, and yes, Epstein made some decent moves, but the core of that team was built by Duquette.

Duquette traded reliever Heathcliff Slocumb to the Seattle Mariners for Jason Varitek and Derek Lowe and then he traded Tony Armas and Carl Pavano to the Montreal Expos for Pedro Martinez in 1997. He signed free agents like Manny Ramirez, Johnny Damon, and Tim Wakefield. He was also responsible for drafting Kevin Youkilis.

“But didn’t Theo bring in Josh Beckett”, you say? Yes, he sure did. He traded away Anibal Sanchez and some guy named Hanley Ramirez—both players signed and developed by Duquette—to get Schilling and Mike Lowell. That’s the same Hanley Ramirez who is now one of the best players in all of baseball with the Florida Marlins.

MacPhail made a few good moves of his own, such as the trade that brought in Adam Jones and Chris Tillman from the Seattle Mariners for Erik Bedard, along with the trade that brought in J.J. Hardy this past winter, but it’s tough to tell how well he would have done if you had stepped back and allowed him to do his job.

You are a brilliant litigator, Mr. Angelos. Please stick to that and let the baseball minds work on the Orioles. Because when it comes to baseball, you don’t have the tools of the lowliest Legal Aid attorney.

Case in point: Albert Belle. Another case in point: Sammy Sosa. You don’t want us to go to the jury with that, do you?

We plead with you, Mr. Angelos, to let Dan Duquette do what he was brought in here to do. He turned around a team that had not won a World Series in 86 years, so turning around a team in Baltimore that hasn’t won a World Series since 1983 should be cake for Duquette.
