The fans may be getting restless, but Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette seems determined to prove that patience is a virtue even in the win-now world of professional sports. Well, he calls it patience. The naysayers might call it frustrating inactivity. The Orioles open spring training in about two weeks and the club still has not made good on their intention to add a veteran starting pitcher or, really, any significant free agent who might improve their chances of getting back to the playoffs in 2014.

What's your best Opening Day memory? I remember against the Indians [in 1986] when [President Ronald] Reagan came and stayed three innings in the dugout. You'd come in after the inning and he'd say, "Hey, nice going." It was like, "You want a hot dog?" We thought he was going to stay there for the whole game.

Fate has not been friendly to the Orioles so far this offseason, but frustration might have reached its peak on Friday, when the team cut ties with a player who would have been its prize acquisition of the hot-stove season, further compounding the club's star-crossed December. The Orioles officially parted ways with free-agent closer Grant Balfour on Friday when executive vice president Dan Duquette announced the club was diving back into the free-agent closer market after team doctors were not satisfied with the results of Balfour's pre-signing physical.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette supressed speculation that the club was nearing a deal with a free-agent closer on Tuesday here at baseball's winter meetings. The day began with rumors that the Orioles were close to signing free-agent closer Grant Balfour, but Duquette told local media late Tuesday afternoon that those reports were way ahead of reality. “There's a lot of speculation out there with the closer thing and I think the speculation is pretty far ahead of the market and our involvement in the market,” Duquette said.

The frenzy of transactions that previewed this year's winter meetings gave way to a slow opening day Monday, and along with that, the Orioles resumed a methodical plan of improving their club for next season. The Orioles reopened talks with prospective free agents and possible trade partners during the winter meetings Monday, and executive vice president Dan Duquette remains confident he will return to Baltimore with a new acquisition. “We've had a lot of conversations,” Duquette said.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette was fairly adamant last offseason that he would not sign a free agent who would require his club to give up its first-round draft pick. He didn't, and the Orioles selected high school pitcher Hunter Harvey with the 22nd overall pick of the 2013 amateur draft. This year, however, Duquette seems to have softened that stance, at least slightly. When asked whether he still would be hesitant to forfeit a pick for a free agent, Duquette said: “We'll have to evaluate that on a case-by-case basis.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Before Michael Lewis' book "Moneyball" hit the best sellers list and before Brad Pitt brought Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane to the big screen in the Academy Award-nominated film of the same name, the concept of building a small-market club through shrewd acquisitions, farm system strengthening and an obsession with on-base percentage had already been featured north of the border. Arguably, the first incarnation of the Moneyball concept occurred in Montreal in the early 1990s.

Earlier this morning, we featured a chart from baseball statistician Bill Arnold that listed Orioles' executive vice president Dan Duquette's lifetime record at an impressive 930-786. That winning percentage places him fifth among the men who held the general manager position (or similar duties) for the 30 MLB teams in 2012. Pretty impressive. Frankly, it was better than I realized. But if you dig a little deeper, the numbers could be even more eye-popping. Duquette left Montreal and joined the Boston Red Sox in February 1994.

The Orioles decided to kick the tires on 49-year-old lefthander Jamie Moyer, giving him a three-start trial run at Triple-A Norfolk to see if he could help the club. Moyer, who made that third start on Wednesday, can now opt out. Coming off an off-day Thursday and having another one Monday, the Orioles don't need a fifth starter until conceivably a week from tomorrow. So the Orioles offered Moyer one more start at Norfolk and are now waiting to hear whether the veteran left-hander will accept the offer or part ways with the organization.

Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette talked about various subjects today, including the claim of Milwaukee Brewers 25-year-old infielder Zelous Wheeler and the designation for assignment of lefty Dana Eveland. This is just a sense, but I think Duquette believes he can deal Eveland if the Orioles don't think he can get through waivers. It's hard to imagine the Orioles releasing Eveland, so he'll end up at Norfolk if he clears - Eveland said that likely would be his inclination as well.
