Agreed. But given the GM/Mgr situation, they won't

Duquette will not be back after 2018 so there's no incentive for him to gear towards a rebuild. Angelos is 87, so who knows if he'll be around long enough for a rebuild. Buck probably won't be back after 2018. So despite the clear fruitlessness of that effort, the Orioles will continue to aim to win now.

The sad thing is that the Duquette's concern ONLY for the present has shipped off many of the best prospects (often for very marginal and current returns with no future value). After 2018, the Orioles are likely to find themselves back in to pre-2012 levels. It's going to take them at least 3-4 years from there to get back to even being decent. But the best thing for them will be to have the bottom fall out quickly. At least then they can get some high draft picks.
