This actually happened a couple of days ago, but strangely nobody submitted an article about it here. Where’s the Orioles esprit de corp on Primer?
BALTIMORE—Buck Showalter was tired of hearing about his contract. Ever since the end of the most successful season in 14 years, the Baltimore Orioles manager was pestered about the contract.
Showalter would tell everyone that he had a deal for the 2013 season, and he had more job security than most American workers. He wasn’t worried.
Now, Showalter has more job security than almost any American worker including almost all his players, and so does the Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette.
On Wednesday, the Orioles announced extensions for both. Showalter’s is a five-year extension; Duquette’s a four-year one. They’ll be under contract through the 2018 season with the Orioles.
I must say, it represents quite the turnaround for Dan Duquette. Then again Karlmagnus would be happy to explain to you why he was the *true* architect of the Red Sox’ World Series victory in 2003.
