Orioles hire Mike Elias as Executive Vice President and GM

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.

    • Andrew Luck was dealing with chronic pain.  Chris Davis is injured and Luck is leaving zero guaranteed money on the table. NFL contracts are not guaranteed.
    • I was thinking about this today. How Chris's image would improve if he retired with a buyout agreement favorable to both parties.  Otherwise the general feeling of most people is he is stealing money from the Orioles who have made him a multi-millionaire. Hopefully his wife can get through to him and suggest at the end of the season he retire. I know this is unlikely with Scott Boras as his agent. Maybe Chris can explain to him his frustration with the game and his declining batting skills have caused him to make this decision.
    • This guy is on fire.....I'm wondering if the guys that said he'd be Nontendered this offseason are ready to eat crow?? C'mon gents, we know who you are!
    • I thought I read something about 80 million from MASN a while back. Even with Davis, Cobb, and Trumbo contracts the Os are making a pretty hefty profit just on the national and MASN deals.   So even if the number 0nly 110-120 million in revenue between the 2 deals ...the payroll is only 72 million and certain to ge less next year. A 40 million surplus times 2
    • When I lived in L.A. and often went down the block to Mexican taco and burrito vans for dinner, cabeza was one of my favorites.
    • I was at the Shorebirds vs my hometown Hagerstown Suns where 3,106 showed up for a Low A baseball doubleheader featuring a Mike Mussina bobble head for the first 1,000 fans (unfortunately I was in the 2,106 who didn’t get one).  Of course game one also had Grayson Rodriquez pitching to Adley Rutchman.  I will stick to attendance in this thread and say that the orange and black dominated the crowd in this Nationals affiliate’s park.   Not sure how long the rebuild will take but there is definitely some excitement for the future out here in the hinterlands.
