Baltimore Orioles: A Look Back at Andy MacPhail's First Offseason

When Andy MacPhail joined the Baltimore Orioles in the middle of the 2007 season, the Orioles were hoping for a fresh look to turn around the organization. After a little over four years as the team's president of baseball operations, the two sides agreed to a mutual split and the Orioles searched for a new leader.

Now, Dan Duquette is the executive vice president of baseball operations and has been fairly quiet. He has made a few international signings, headed by two lefties from the Nippon Baseball League, Tsuyoshi Wada and Wei-Yin Chen, a couple trades for depth, such as the deals for Dana Eveland and Taylor Teagarden, and a few minor league free agent signings.

Many fans are clamoring for a big name like Edwin Jackson or Prince Fielder, but if Duquette's first year is anything like MacPhail's, I wouldn't expect a big-name player.

Here is a look back at MacPhail's first offseason and an update on where the players are now.
