In becoming the new general manager of the Baltimore Orioles earlier this offseason, Dan Duquette took on a task few would embrace and even fewer would succeed in.

Since the time of him being named to the position, the Orioles front office hasn't made any huge moves thus far. Duquette is too busy worrying about acquiring depth to help fuel this train-wreck of an organization.

He can't sign big name guys because they don't want to come to a loser of 14 consecutive seasons. And owner Peter Angelos won't pony up the necessary funds to convince them to consider Baltimore a legitimate destination.

And he can't swing any trades because the only players other teams would want are those that Duquette won't trade without being incredibly overwhelmed by the offer.

Let's examine how he's done so far.
