Video: Talking What's Important with Former Baltimore Orioles VP Jim Duquette

| by

After the 2004 season as the New York Mets GM, Jim Duquette became the Baltimore Orioles Vice President of Baseball Operations.

Duquette who is most known as the GM who pulled the trigger on the Scott Kazmir trade (Victor Zambrano never did pan out, but to Duquette’s credit, while Kazmir pitched well for a bit, he didn’t exactly turn out to be Sandy Koufax and did in fact break down as Duquette predicted) has moved to the broadcast side of the industry and is the co-host of “Power Alley” on Sirius XM‘s MLB Network Radio on Sirius 209 and XM 89.

Jim is also a fill in commentator for the Mets on their flagship station WFAN.

On a more serious note, Jim is involved in some news that makes baseball seem pretty trivial. Duquette is donating one of his kidneys to his 10-year old daughter.
