Well, if you look at his track record he has every right to be cocky.

I'm optimistic for sure. My brother is in the camp that they need to blow it all up and start over, but I'm hoping they keep some nuggets (but they'll obviously need to part with a few...). Duquette is mentioned in Moneyball, right? I think he'll be more aggressive than MacPhail, but since everyone's a critic, it might be met with mixed reviews. Here's hoping he gets enough time to make a difference.

haha...I think people would skewer him if he wasn't cocky enough. He has to make almost a decade out of MLB ops look like no big deal!

We need someone to change the attitude in the Warehouse. Maybe he has the personality to finally do it. Could the Winter meetings finally provide some excitement for us?

Living for years in Red Sox Nation, I can tell you DD is a very solid hire. He is a very intelligent baseball man who will move aggressively to make changes where changes are necessary :)

Matt P. posted this interview with Dan Duquette. It's worth listening to.
