New Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette has been working this week to bolster his front office, and now, at least theoretically, he'll have another hole to fill. Matt Klentak, the club's 31-year-old director of baseball operations, accepted an assistant general manager position with the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday. He will be working directly with new Angels GM Jerry Dipoto, who interviewed in October for the Orioles' top executive job that eventually went to Duquette earlier this month.

Three front-runners emerged in the Orioles' general manager search this weekend, and though one published report said the team is close to hiring former Chicago White Sox GM Ron Schueler, owner Peter Angelos said yesterday, "A decision has not been reached." Former Montreal Expos GM Jim Beattie and Orioles broadcaster Mike Flanagan remain in the running, club officials said yesterday. Though Angelos hasn't tipped his hand, speculation around the team indicates he is leaning toward hiring Schueler or Beattie to replace vice president of baseball operations Syd Thrift, with Flanagan assuming another top position within the front office.

With Cal Ripken out of the running, and the Boston Red Sox courting Mike Flanagan, Orioles owner Peter Angelos continues to proceed methodically through his search for the team's next general manager. For the Orioles, it's three interviews down - four if you count the countless hours Angelos has spent picking Flanagan's brain about baseball in recent years - and at least two to go. Yesterday, the club made plans to interview Seattle Mariners vice president Roger Jongewaard and that won't happen until next Thursday, following baseball's general manager meetings in Tucson, Ariz.
