After working in the New York Mets' front office for 14 years, Jim Duquette, 40, was named the Orioles' vice president for baseball operations on Oct. 20, 2005. On June 12, 2003, he was named the Mets' interim general manager; the interim tag was removed a little more than four months later. Duquette oversaw the development of current Mets stars Jose Reyes and David Wright, but also drew criticism for trading prospect Scott Kazmir, now one of the best young pitchers in the game. What is the most misunderstood part of being a baseball executive?

Bowling Wiseman elected to PBA Hall of Fame Danny Wiseman of Baltimore, a 12-time PBA Tour winner, was elected to the PBA Hall of Fame along with Doug Kent , the Professional Bowlers Association announced Friday. They will be inducted during the Hall of Fame dinner March 30 in Indianapolis. Wiseman, 45, joined the tour in 1987 and has earned just over $1.55 million. Wiseman, who attended Dundalk, won his first title at the 1990 Fair Lanes Open in Baltimore. Perhaps his most famous win came in 2004, when he took the USBC Miller High Life Masters at Miller Park in Milwaukee - the first time a bowling championship had been conducted inside a major league baseball stadium.

The problems of a 10-year-old sound something like this. "Can I pleeeaaase have an email account?" pleads Lindsey Duquette, jumping up and down in front of her mom, Pam Duquette, in the family kitchen in Sparks. "All my friends have email. " It's enough to make any parents roll their eyes. But for the Duquette family - dad is former Orioles vice president turned baseball analyst Jim Duquette - childhood dramas like this secretly make them smile. A year ago the now rambunctious Lindsey was bedridden and lethargic.

Jim Duquette and his daughter Lindsey are recovering after the former Orioles executive donated his kidney to the 10-year-old earlier this month. Lindsey suffers from a rare kidney disorder with no known cure, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis , that destroyed her kidneys, creating the need for the transplant. The transplant won't necessarily cure Lindsey and there is a 50 percent chance the disease will attack the new organs. But the family is hoping it could put her in a form of remission.

Jim Duquette was hired yesterday as Orioles vice president for baseball operations to assist executive vice president Mike Flanagan. He will help Flanagan and the rest of the front office with contract negotiations, salary arbitration and personnel decisions. That's something the Orioles want to make clear. "It's not a co-GM situation," Flanagan said. Still, the addition of Duquette, a well-respected executive with general manager's experience, prompted the obvious questions about the structure of the Orioles' new-look front office.

It's a staple of sports talk radio - a club official comes on the air, and fans get to call in and ask questions. But, as WBAL (1090 AM) host Steve Davis has learned this week, it's not working that way with the Orioles since spring training has begun. As Davis posted at the station's Web site yesterday, the club has instituted a policy prohibiting members of team management - such as vice president Jim Duquette or manager Sam Perlozzo - from taking callers' questions when they appear on his nightly talk show.

SAN FRANCISCO -- While attending All-Star Game proceedings with several of his top clients yesterday, superagent Scott Boras said he hasn't had any discussions with Orioles owner Peter Angelos about Matt Wieters, the club's 2007 top draft pick. But negotiating with Angelos isn't a problem now and won't be in the future, according to Boras. "With Peter, whenever he has called me I've returned his calls and whenever I've called him he's returned mine," Boras said. "He's a hard-working guy. We're both Greek.

When the Orioles agreed to a three-year contract Sunday with Dan Duquette to be the club's executive vice president, they hired a candidate with more than a decade of experience as a general manager and a track of record of getting teams on the right path. The reality, however, is that the floundering Orioles also targeted a guy who hasn't been part of Major League Baseball since he was fired by the Red Sox in March 2002 — a veritable lifetime in the ever-rotating circles of baseball.

Here's the first sign that the Orioles might be turning some kind of organizational corner under new president Andy MacPhail and manager Dave Trembley: They actually signed a guy who had other opportunities. New pitching coach Rick Kranitz was Baseball America's Major League Coach of the Year after getting great results from a youthful Florida Marlins pitching staff in 2006. He interviewed with the Seattle Mariners over the past couple of weeks and was offered a place on Dusty Baker's new coaching staff with the Cincinnati Reds.

Andy MacPhail's love of baseball bloomed in Baltimore, and now he is apparently heading back. The Orioles have agreed in principle with former Chicago Cubs and Minnesota Twins executive MacPhail - whose father once was Baltimore's general manager - to be the club's next chief operating officer, a baseball official confirmed yesterday. Reached by phone yesterday morning, MacPhail, 54, a consultant for Major League Baseball and commissioner Bud Selig, would not comment. "I am just not really at liberty to discuss the situation at present," MacPhail said.
