Elias Progress Thread

Recommended Posts

Another MiLB hire from the lower college ranks, this time DII.

If you look at his twitter feed, you can see he values the use of technology in coaching.

I love this. I think this is like 3 or 4 hires like this? They did a lot of this in Houston. Highly underrated moves that will help remake and refresh the farm system with youth and new school coaching.

If Elias and the org was really going cheap, why spend money and worry about the Dominican facilities and the players there??????

I think the cheap is on the MLB portion of the enterprise. I don't think they will go cheap on any of the other aspects.

Here's a short interview I ran across with Peter Gammons from Sunday. Mike doesn't really say anything new but it's interesting. Don't know if it'll link right...

You’re right, nothing much new there, but the guy just exudes competence.

One paragraph from Roch yesterday afternoon. I don't know if this rates upgrading the OP but it's progress nonetheless.

 

* The Orioles also were busy today back in Baltimore, hiring Michael Weis as a new data analyst for assistant general manager Sig Mejdal. Weis has a master’s degree in business analytics and an undergraduate in math. He possesses four years of experience as a data analyst in predictive analytics in multiple fields.

More analytics hires are coming later this month.

I hate using the word cheap. I think they are not going to just waste money on a team of youth they are building up.

I suspect as the team improves over the next year or two, you will see them spend money again, for now, unless you have a stud with more than 3 years of life left in them. :)

I believe they will spend in mlb payroll the absolute minimum they can without giving away actual young talent. Not 28 year olds mind you. 22 year olds. For the next couple seasons.
