Jim Duquette is the former GM of the Baltimore Orioles who is currently an MLB analyst on Sirius/XM Radio.
Jim Duquette joined Ed and Ken to talk about the first place Orioles and the upcoming MLB All-Star game.
Jim started out talking about Chris Davis saying “His power has gone downhill…but he can fix that in the second half and paint a new story on this season.” When asked about if the Rays will trade David Price and where he’ll go Jim said “the Tigers, Cardinals, Seattle, and Toronto…those 4 teams in particular come up the most when Price is mentioned.” Finally Jim talked about Adam Jones in the Home-Run derby and if it will hurt Jones swing saying “there is enough evidence that says some guys struggle after participating in it…I don’t know that the Home-Run derby is the reason for there struggle though I don’t buy it.”
