Found January 16, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Baltimore Orioles are hoping to continue their surprising success of 2012 by extending the contracts of manager Buck Showalter and vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette through the 2018 season. Showalter's extension adds five years to a contract that had been set to expire after the 2013 season. Showalter, 56, is 196-185 since taking over as Baltimore's manager on Aug. 2, 2010. Duquette was hired in November 2011 with a three-year deal that would have expired at the end of 2014. He had four years added to his contract. Showalter and Duquette helped produce a 93-win season for the Orioles, who made it to the postseason for the first time since 1997.

COMMENTARY | On Jan. 16, the Baltimore Orioles extended the contracts of manager Buck Showalter and Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations Dan Duquette through 2018. Showalter and Duquette helped the Orioles reach the playoffs last season for the first time in 15 years, engineering a remarkable turnaround.

Buck and The Duke Extended Until '18

I'm sure you all have heard and read this, but Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter and Vice President of Baseball Operations Dan Duquette have had their contracts extended until 2018. Finally, after nearly a decade-plus, the Orioles finally have some stability within the organization. Obviously, most fans have heard in the past week or two that the organization was...

Player Profile #155: Nick Markakis | OF | BAL

Nick Markakis is usually a lock for 150 games (averaged 158 games from 2006-2011), but he only managed 104 games last year thanks to a fractured hamate bone and a broken thumb. It’s too bad because Markakis was actually starting to show some of that power we saw early in his career; his .174 ISO last year was his highest mark since .185 in 2008. His increased power even came while...

Could Orioles trade Jim Johnson for Porcello?

The Baltimore Orioles arent interested in trading shortstop J.J. Hardy to Detroit for starter Rick Porcello. They may be more willing to trade closer Jim Johnson. At first blush, that seems odd. But theres a sabermetric rationale behind it. Johnson could have a superb 2013 season and still not approach what he accomplished last year: He led the majors with 51 saves, made his first...

Player Profile #148: Chris Davis | 1B, OF | BAL

No one’s inclusion in the top 200 for 2013 surprises me more than Chris Davis. Entering last season Davis had over 1,000 mostly failed plate appearances at the major league level, and he wasn’t showing any signs of improvement. In 59 games in 2011 Davis struck out his usual 30% of the time, and his 5.2 BB% was a career-worst. Because of Davis’ style of play, he’s useless...

Adam Jones Is Awesome (PHOTO)

I know that many of you don’t care for the Orioles but I do and this is so cool: Adam Jones flew from his home in San Diego to Baltimore for Ray Lewis’ final home game, then traveled to Denver to watch the Ravens upset the Broncos in double overtime and now he’s headed to New England for the AFC Championship. Between this and a general distaste for Boston it’s enough to make...
