Dan DuquetteBy C. Trent Rosecrans

As expected, the Orioles will hold a news conference at 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday to announce Dan Duquette as the team's new executive vice president of baseball operations.

Duquette, 53, is a former general manager for the Expos and Red Sox, but hadn't been employed by a big league team since being fired by Boston in spring training of 2002.

Early reports note that Duquette will receive a three-year deal.

The team's general manager search has been much maligned after Blue Jays assistant general manager Tony LaCava turned down an offer from the Orioles, leading to a re-opening of the position and more interviews, including Duquette.

The team also interviewed new Angels GM Jerry Dipoto, the Dodgers' DeJon Watson, the Phillies' Scott Proefrock and Baltimore's John Stockstill.

Duquette will be taking over an underwhelming major league roster and an even worse minor-league system -- not to mention the two-headed monster of owner Peter Angelos and manager Buck Showwalter, who apparently holds the most sway over Angelos of anyone in the organization. However, CBSSports.com senior writer Danny Knobler wrote that Duquette may just end up being the right choice for the Orioles -- that's what will be said on Tuesday, but only time will tell.

Sadly, as long as Angelos owns this team, doesn't matter who they hire.  They will never get a sniff of post season play.
