As Dan Duquette prepared to leave the Hilton Anatole on Tuesday evening for a staff dinner at manager Buck Showalter's Dallas-area home, he had yet to land the pitchers and outfielder he is seeking at the annual winter meetings. But the club's new executive vice president of baseball operations apparently is trying, confirming Tuesday that he has made several trade and free-agent offers in attempt to acquire pitchers and hitters. Two players the Orioles are interested in, according to multiple sources, are Chicago White Sox: right-handed pitcher Gavin Floyd, who grew up in Severna Park and attended Mount St. Joseph, and outfielder Carlos Quentin, who three years ago was an American League Most Valuable Player candidate.

SAN DIEGO -- The most recent change in the Orioles' front office is almost certain to affect Jim Duquette, the club's vice president of baseball operations. Just how much should be determined once he has contact with the latest hire. Duquette said he hadn't spoken to Andy MacPhail, introduced yesterday as the team's president of baseball operations. A meeting is likely Monday, when MacPhail returns to Baltimore and moves into his new office in the B&O warehouse. "At some point, at some future date, we'll have a full idea, but it's still a little early," Duquette said before last night's game at Petco Park in San Diego.

Ideally, Dan Duquette would like a little more power in the Boston Red Sox's lineup, preferably from an experienced hitter, but he said it's unlikely the Sox will be very active in the free agent market. Jimy Williams mentioned that, for him, pitching is always the key.But yesterday, in the aftermath of the Red Sox' elimination from the playoffs, the general manager and manager were caught between looking ahead to the 2000 season and back at the improbable season just completed."We have a lot to be proud of, a lot to build on," said Duquette, who held an impromptu press conference late yesterday morning at Fenway Park, in part so he could personally thank the team's fans on the noon TV news spots.

A week after telling a club official by phone that he wants to stay in Baltimore, Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada reiterated that request in an interview with The Sun in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, last night. Soon, Tejada said he hopes to have a face-to-face conversation with club executive vice president Mike Flanagan, vice president Jim Duquette or both. "I think they are coming [to the Dominican] next week," Tejada told The Sun before his team, Aguilas Cibaenas, played in a Dominican Winter League playoff game.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- How much can you sacrifice for defense? It is a question Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo has had to struggle with recently as center fielder Corey Patterson falls into a bigger slump. "You can't have everything," Perlozzo said. "It seems like you have good defense or no offense, or you try to get some offense and hope the defense doesn't come into play. That's part of the way it is." Perlozzo sat the struggling Patterson last night, moving Jay Payton to center field and giving Jay Gibbons the start in left field, his second start in six games.

BOSTON -- He thanked the Fenway parking lot attendants. He thanked the ushers and security guards. He thanked the toll collectors on the Massachusetts Pike, who always had a kind word for him, even as the losses mounted.He thanked the people in the Red Sox offices, affectionately saluting secretaries and assistant publicists whose names some of his players barely knew.Say this about Butch Hobson. He may have pumped a lot of iron, but he never got too big for his britches. He had brought notes to this, his final Red Sox press conference, and kept referring to them because, he said over and over, he didn't want to forget anybody.

Orioles vice president Jim Duquette was nice enough to call into the MASN Playmakers show after his flight from Naples, Fla., delayed because of the weather, finally made a bumpy landing at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport. When I asked about reports that the Orioles were in the running to sign Barry Bonds, Duquette dismissed them as "one of those rumors," as I figured. "Right now, it's not an area we're focusing on." Revisiting the Jaret Wright trade, Duquette estimated that the right-hander would have received $7 million to $8 million per year, as part of a multi-year contract, on the free-agent market.
