Recommended Posts

This makes me feel like things are changing for the better. Young, bright mind out of a great analytical organization.

What does "barring a sudden change of heart" mean? Dexter Fowler all over again...

Wouldn't worry too much on that. Probably just means he hasnt officially signed yet but that's the plan.

Awesome! He was my first choice because he’s been in a franchise that was in poor shape but has become a success. 

Yep, saw it and was a part of it from the get go.

Seriously a fantastic hire. Was going to go into deep depression if Colletti was the guy, unless he had someone with him like Elias.

I’m not too surprised tbh. John and Louis seem to be different than their father Peter in how they approach baseball. Now I’m curious about who he hires as a manager and other stuff. I’m pretty excited about this. This may take time but I think Elias could start a strong foundation that will should we become contenders in his tenure not digress to where we are now and I agree about Coletti. Way too old school a hire.

Yeah, this place has been in shambles because we haven't gotten a lot of leaks and it's taken a bit, but with this hire it makes that all WELL worth it. 

Also, with a hire like Elias, this clearly shows a massive shift in the way this organization will be run and he was likely assured a blank canvas to do what he wants with the organization. There's no way an assistant GM for one of the best run analytical baseball clubs would take a job like our's without assurances that there wouldn't be meddling/someone over his shoulder.

Ok, is there going to be two hires?  Or just Elias as the GM?

So no President of Baseball Ops?

Sure sounds like Elias is the head man running the show. Wouldn't be surprised if we saw one of those guys from the MLB come in with some sort of role pending on what Elias thinks though.

    • Curve Halt Baysox, 7-0 Bowie stays one game back with Erie loss at Harrisburg.   BOWIE, Md. – Sean Brady tossed a complete-game shutout to lead the Altoona Curve to a 7-0 win over the Bowie Baysox in front of 4,973 at Prince George's Stadium Friday night.   Chris Sharpe hit a solo home run off Alex Wells in the fourth inning to break up the scoreless deadlock, while three RBI doubles by Jason Delay, Adrian Valerio and Sharpe sparked a 6-run fifth inning to put the Curve (29-33) ahead 7-0.    A bright spot for the Baysox (41-21) came from their bullpen, which combined to throw 4 2/3 scoreless innings after Wells was removed from the contest. Francisco Jimenez struck out a pair of batters in 1 2/3 innings, while Brian Gonzalez worked through two clean frames. Zach Muckenhirn completed a perfect ninth inning to wrap up a solid relief effort.   The Maryland Crab Cakes make their debut when they and Altoona square off in the penultimate home game at Prince George’s Stadium Saturday night at 6:35 p.m. RHP Michael Baumann (4-2, 2.31 ERA) faces LHP Cam Vieaux (3-3, 2.27 ERA). The first 500 fans (ages 13+) receive a pair of Bay-socks upon entrance at the front gate.

    • II bet if the kid was an Orioles-fan and had to watch CD stink up the place night after night eating up a large part of the salary budget he would write a totally different letter.
    • Because rumor/speculation has it that Eric was so strung out on heroine that he needed someone to cover for him to make the album...
