Elias' Brady comments (Connolly article)

Recommended Posts

Please go read Dan's article, but here are some quotes from Elias talking to Buster Olney about Brady:

“I talked to (Anderson) a few times already. I’m just kind of on-boarding. We’ve been working together on some stuff as we’re getting acclimated and all the things that we have going on right now. He’s very smart, he’s very capable, and, most of all, he has a very deep love for this franchise. So, I’m looking forward to working with him. This is kind of a rapid transition period for me. I think we will answer those questions very well over time and see how things go and see how we can work together and build an appropriate relationship. But he’s a sharp guy and a good asset.”

We'll know more when Brady's contract expires, which should be in January or February, based on when he joined the baseball operations team.

Interesting. Yeah and there was similar praise for Gary and Brian. It sounds like Elias maybe hasn't even gotten to baseball operations personnel yet and he'll assess once he does.

Sounds like Elias has been told Brady has to stick around for now.

Sounds like Brady is under contract for now.

Well, maybe we're wrong and Brady is actually a competent guy and Elias sees value in him?  It's possible.  And then if he keeps Brady on, do we give Elias the benefit of the doubt or is that strike one against him?  

Waiting for Frobby to tell us how bored he is of this :skeletor:

That's the thing is it's hard to know, and that's going to really dig into my brain like a splinter and be real annoying. 

Just fire the guy for our collective sanity.

Yeah....no.  If we're all aboard the Elias train and Elias sees value in Brady, we need to give him the benefit of the doubt.  If Elias is reading OH and is like "Yup, these dorks on a message board want Brady gone, I'm letting him go Friday," then...Elias is a dunce.  And we know Elias is not a dunce.

And if Elias IS reading this....hey man, hit me up.  I'll start off at the lowest rungs of the organization and work my way up.  Seriously, just gimme a shot.

Yeah I mean ultimately I agree. If he retains him I WILL be giving him the benefit of the doubt but I also WILL hate the inevitable endless handwringing on the board haha.

If they keep Brady, we will probably never know if it's by the choice of Elias, or if he was told Brady comes with the job.  If it's the latter, then ownership is still not totally letting someone run the show. Of course, if Elias agreed to that, then that's on him. Good luck looking over your shoulders.

(Its all speculation right now)

Who was the last guy in an O's front-office role - as opposed to an on-field position - who was let go before his contract was up? Don't expect answers about anyone until it's time for their contract to be renewed.

As Elias said about the Brady situation, "I think we will answer those questions very well over time and see how things go and see how we can work together and build an appropriate relationship." In other words, it's not time to decide yet.

    • Unfortunately we're going through this shakeout period with regards to streaming and everyone thinks you're going to pay $10, $20, $50, $80 a month for their service.  But most people are going to pick a few that best suit them and just say no to all the others.  No, I'm not changing everything around and paying more just to get the one with MASN.  But I would definitely pay $15 or whatever a month to watch just the O's.
    • Some more precise numbers from Jon Meoli at The Sun on the mid-range Dominican players. I believe it is still policy not to announce the signing bonuses of Venezuelan players due to unrest in that country. 
    • That makes sense for all involved. Looking forward to seeing a healthy Trey next season on the field.
    • Orioles sign 17 International Free Agents Per Melewski: https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2021/01/basallo-and-hernandez-head-up-os-international-class.html "The Orioles today announced a signing class of 17 international amateurs, including the club’s first two players signed for seven figures. Per industry sources, the club has contract agreements with catcher Samuel Basallo from the Dominican Republic for $1.3 million and with Venezuelan shortstop Maikol Hernández for $1.2 million. The Orioles announced that 11 more from this group are six-figure agreements. Of the 17 agreements, 13 are from the Dominican Republic and four are from Venezuela   Catcher Samuel Basallo, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic Basallo, once linked to the New York Yankees, got the largest signing bonus ever given to an international amateur by the Orioles. Basallo, who turned 16 on Aug. 13, has plus arm strength and some solid raw power. Some scouts have put a 60 grade on his arm. At 6-foot-3 and 198 lbs., it’s possible he could outgrow the catcher position. Shortstop Maikol Hernández, R/R, 17, Venezuela At 6-foot-4 and 175 lbs., Hernández has several impressive tools with a strong arm and power. He’s drawn some comparisons to bigger shortstops at young ages like Carlos Correa and Manny Machado. He was previously linked to St. Louis and Pittsburgh. Six players, per industry sources, signed with the Orioles for bonuses between $300,000 and $400,000. Here is that group: Outfielder Wilmer Feliciano, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic He is a lefty batter with some solid raw power and it is believed got the third-highest bonus among this group. Shortstop Victor Celedonio, S/R, 17, Dominican Republic A switch-hitter, it is believed he got the fourth-highest signing bonus in this class. Outfielder Teudis Cortorreal, L/L, 17, Dominican Republic A lefty batter who is a center field prospect. Shortstop Eruviel Castillo, R/R, 17 Dominican Republic Shortstop Anderson De Los Santos, R/R, 17, Dominican Republic Catcher Yasmil Bucce, L/R, 16, Venezuela The following players signed six-figure bonuses, believed to range between $100,000 and $225,000. Catcher Aneudis Mordán, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Shortstop Angel Tejada, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Center fielder Junior Lara, L/L, 16, Dominican Republic Left-hander Deivy Cruz, L/L, 16, Dominican Republic Center fielder Ángel Peña, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic These four signings round out this class. Outfielder Héctor Jiménez, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Left-hander Elvis Polanco, L/L, 17, Dominican Republic Catcher Carlos Rodríguez, R/R, 17, Venezuela Outfielder Grabiel Salazar, R/R, 19, Venezuela"
