An article that I wrote for Tuesday's newspaper is about reliever Andrew Miller, who has been absolutely filthy in the playoffs after pitching exceptionally well since the Orioles acquired him for left-handed pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez at the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline. In one sense, it will be difficult to analyze the effectiveness of the trade until we see what Rodriguez does in the major leagues. Plus, it's possible that Miller is simply a rental player, will leave as a free agent this winter, and the Orioles will only get two months and a postseason from the big left-hander.

We all saw this coming. Jim Duquette was going to quit or be fired, but he wasn't staying in the Orioles' organization. And Friday, he made it official: He resigned as vice president of baseball operations. Once Andy MacPhail was hired as president of baseball operations, Duquette became third on the food chain. And I'm not counting majority owner Peter Angelos, who's the big fish. MacPhail was the No. 1 decision-maker, followed by executive vice president Mike Flanagan and Duquette. Except MacPhail seemed to be making all the decisions, without needing to consult anyone.

Here are some quotes from a wild night at Camden Yards -- the Orioles' first division title since 1997. Manager Buck Showalter: "You get older, you want to get a good angle and a good seat and see good people get a return for what they put into it and what they're trying to achieve. And this is a huge step, to get a chance now. We've got to figure out a way to win 11 games. " Showalter on changing his seat in the dugout and ending up next to the plaque of Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver in the dugout: “There are some great moments in your life.

In case you were wondering, Jim Duquette didn't lose 93 games this year or poke Erik Bedard in the ribs or, for that matter, do anything to warrant his departure from Baltimore other than show up here in the first place. He resigned yesterday because he had become an extra part in a new machine and he didn't want to become even less important when club president Andy MacPhail brings in a new right-hand man later this month. Give Duquette credit. He has never had trouble reading the writing on the clubhouse wall.

If Dan Duquette accomplishes his goal this week during baseball's annual winter meetings, he will leave here with an improved pitching staff that is fortified by trades. He wants to bolster the bullpen and rotation, yet still hold on to three of his most marketable hitters, catcher Matt Wieters, center fielder Adam Jones and right fielder Nick Markakis. And Duquette said he would be reluctant to trade a chunk of his young pitching, even if it hasn't yet performed to its capabilities.

With Kevin McClatchy stepping down as the Pittsburgh Pirates' chief executive officer at the end of the season, it's unclear whether majority owner Robert Nutting will be looking for a baseball man or a business expert to run the much-maligned Bucs. If he's searching for someone within the game, though, Orioles vice president Jim Duquette seems like a logical candidate to at least get a phone call. There is an obvious connection between Nutting, president of a West Virginia-based newspaper company, and Duquette.

Boston Red Sox general manager Dan Duquette has displayed a singular knack for finding that veteran pitcher who is on the brink of a career renaissance, so why should anyone be surprised at the performance of Japanese pitcher Hideo Nomo? The veteran right-hander flirted with a no-hitter again on Friday night -- less than a month after no-hitting the Orioles in his first start in a Red Sox uniform. He is 3-1 with a 2.40 ERA and off to the best start of his American career. Duquette signed him to a one-year contract in mid-December, after all the premier free-agent pitchers were gone, and Nomo is one of the major reasons the Red Sox entered the weekend atop the American League East.

New York Mets Senior Vice President Jim Duquette met with Orioles officials, including team owner Peter G. Angelos, for more than five hours yesterday, to discuss an upper-level management position in the club's front office. Duquette interviewed with Orioles Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations Mike Flanagan and team general counsel Russell Smouse before meeting with Angelos later in the afternoon. Duquette said that he is "very interested" in the opportunity. "I think there is terrific potential there," said Duquette, the Mets general manager until New York brought in Omar Minaya before the end of the 2004 season.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter has been shuffling his pitching staff all season. If he can find a way to get a starter some rest or bring an extra pitcher into the bullpen for a day or two, he'll do it. The obvious result is that his relievers, for the most part, have maintained their health while pitching effectively. Heading into Saturday's game against the New York Yankees, Orioles relievers had the fourth-best ERA in the American League and sixth-most innings pitched. Only closer Zach Britton was among the league's top 10 in appearances, with 66. Darren O'Day was tied for 25th, with 62, and neither pitched in Saturday's 3-2 loss.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette mentioned several times this month that he would like to bolster his bench depth, especially from the left side of the plate. Well, in a matter of four days, he added four left-handed hitters to the roster. No sexy names, but potentially role fillers, and that's a Duquette specialty. Catcher and left-handed hitter Steve Clevenger came up from Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday. Switch-hitting utility player Jimmy Paredes arrived from the Tides on Thursday.

The Orioles have until Sunday at midnight to add players from other organizations who can be eligible for their playoff roster. Club executive vice president Dan Duquette said he is still trying to make a move, but it's not easy to find a fit. “We've been active. We are keeping active,” Duquette said. “It's just, this time of the year, it's a very limited pool of players that you can add externally to your ballclub. Probably the best resource is in the minors, the minor leagues.” For a player to be dealt this time of year, he must first be placed on trade waivers, which are revocable.

In recent weeks, the Orioles have built the largest division lead in baseball as they chase their first American League East title in 17 years, but the club now faces the possibility of being without All-Star third baseman Manny Machado for an extended amount of time. An MRI performed Tuesday revealed no apparent structural damage, and the club said Machado was diagnosed with a right knee ligament sprain. In some ways, that was good news - especially given how Machado's season ended last year with a left knee injury that required offseason surgery - but it appears that this injury could force Machado to the 15-day disabled list.

WASHINGTON - When the Orioles were discussing trades last month with various teams, they fielded requests targeting their top four pitching prospects: right-handers Kevin Gausman, Dylan Bundy, Hunter Harvey and left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez, who they ultimately dealt Thursday to the Boston Red Sox for reliever Andrew Miller. But there was another wave of inquiries this summer, too. According to multiple sources, teams asked about the availability of several Orioles position prospects, including Triple-A Norfolk outfielder Dariel Alvarez and first baseman Christian Walker, Double-A Bowie outfielder Mike Yastrzemski and Low-A Delmarva catcher Chance Sisco.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette spoke to reporters before Thursday's game about the trade with the Boston Red Sox to acquire left-hander Andrew Miller , as well as the nonwaiver trade deadline passing. Here is what he said: On Miller: "We were looking to add some depth to our pitching, and the acquisition of Miller gives us a left-handed pitcher that can dominate left-handed hitters. This year, he's been highly effective against righties, as well. And looking at the market, we had good depth to our starting pitching, and we thought if we're going to make a real impact acquisition, that this would be the players we would get.” More on Miller: “Miller's emergence this year being able to get out right-handers along with lefties made him very attractive.

The Orioles weren't close to acquiring Boston Red Sox right-hander Jon Lester on Wednesday - one club source said bluntly, “it's not going to happen” - but executive vice president Dan Duquette continues to work the phones as the nonwaiver trade deadline approaches at 4 p.m. today. The club continues to actively search for pitching - with a left-handed reliever that can get out hitters from both sides of the plate as one of the top priorities, according to several sources. “We have a couple of active discussions,” Duquette said before Wednesday's game.

A veteran catcher is available now that the Boston Red Sox have designated A.J. Pierzynski for assignment , but the Orioles don't appear interested in pursuing him at this point. With Matt Wieters out for the season following Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery last month, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette previously has said that the club was confident with the team's existing catching tandem of Caleb Joseph and Nick Hundley. Duquette again emphasized his faith in the duo when asked Wednesday if the club would be interested in acquiring Pierzynski.
