With both Buck Showalter and Dan Duquette entering contract years in 2018, tough decisions are in order to prevent a double lame-duck season. We have good faith that given the ultimatum of keeping Buck or “No Plan Dan,” the choice to keep Showalter (still measurably one of the best field managers in the entire game) would win in a landslide among fans.
But what say you about our good friend Dan Duquette? Should the O’s cut bait now and start building towards a new vision? Should they let the season play out and have his fate hinge on a playoff push? Maybe they should let the contract play out or even extend him?
What say you, Baltimore?
Hard decisions must be made.
Potential Lame-Duck year ahead, the choice to keep Buck should be easy…
What should Dan Duquette's fate be?
