Theory No. 3: Dan Duquette thinks he can do better
There's no doubt that Duquette thinks he can do better, but that doesn't mean that he's going to go out and get a big-name first baseman. He loves to experiment with low-cost reclamation projects and he had enough success last year to engender some confidence that the Orioles will be OK without Reynolds, but the bottom line -- right now -- is that the Orioles just lost a defensive first baseman who made the other three infielders better. Just ask his friend J.J. Hardy.
