Orioles: Jordan's stock goes up (updated)

It's funny how perceptions can change in a heartbeat. The Orioles remain under legitimate fire from fans and outside observers for their inconsistent player development, and scouting director Joe Jordan has not escaped their wrath. He drafted a lot of good young players, but people tend to point to the clinkers -- like the time the Orioles took Billy Rowell ahead of Tim Lincecum -- when they're venting about the long decline of the organization.

So, if Jordan deserves your scorn, why are the Philadelphia Phillies interested in hiring him as their director of player development? He just interviewed with the Phils and we'll probably hear in the next few days whether he gets offered the job...and accepts.
