A day after the Orioles clinched their ninth straight losing season, club vice president Jim Duquette pledged his support for his manager and Sam Perlozzo was adamant that he is the right man to lead the team out of its losing ways.

Duquette said that Perlozzo will return next year for his second full season, acknowledging that the Orioles' manager has been handcuffed at times in 2006 because of a lack of depth and roster inflexibility.
