He was the "genius" who as interm GM traded Scott Kazmir to Tampa Bay for converted infielder Victor "My Elbow" Zambrano. Now he works for the Orioles and when the O's come to Shea in June, he better come to Shea in a disguise.

Nice trade. It will look even worse in five years when we hear "now coming in to pitch for the Yankees Scott Kazmir."

Do not blame Duquette for that trade. It was made by the Wilpons.

I have a recurrent nightmare that Jim Duquette returns to the Mets as GM and trades David Wright and Jose Reyes to the Yankees for Bubba Crosby.

His hands were tied by the Wilpons, who listened to veterans like Franco and Leiter before listening to their GM.

He was a fill-in announcer in the radio booth in the 2012 season, calling Johan's no-hitter with Howie Rose. Thank goodness he improved over the season. In the early going, his voice had so little inflection, it was like listening to paint dry. Someone apparently coached him into sounding more alive in the latter part of the season.
