Jim Duquette is the former co-GM of the Baltimore Orioles who is now an MLB analyst for Sirius/XM Radio.
Jim joined Ed and Steve to talk about the first place Orioles.
Jim started by talking about the Orioles run saying “it’s crazy, it’s been an unbelievable…if you tried to trade Orioles players you wouldn’t get much, but you put them together as a group and they’re one of the best teams in baseball.” When asked about the Orioles being on the same pace as 2012 Jim brought up the difficulty of the Orioles schedule. “If you look at who they’re beating, they’re having there best games against the best pitchers…I don’t think this is a fluke at all.”
