  1. So in three years Elias has somehow taken this team backwards. There is less offensive depth, less consistency, less power, less on base skills, and outside of AR I dont really see a prospect I am excited about offensively.
  2. Stage 3 Ass Kicker. Didn't think he would have this much power so quickly.
  3. I think this thread is the first time I ever realized that his initials are M.E.H.
  4. A lot of people think "we are rebuilding" can cover a lot of flaws in an organization, when the reality is when a team is rebuilding the flaws are magnified. Failures to trade, draft or develop correctly are the difference between a 5 year rebuild which I think a lot of people are hoping for, and a 10 year rebuild with multiple GMs which I honestly think we are a lot closer to right now than the former.
  5. Take a lot of young inexperienced players, add analytics that push a lift swing, deaden the ball allowing for more break on breaking pitches = a lot of strikeouts.
  6. I live in Connecticut and I always wanted make up a T-shirt that said "Yankees Suck" on the front, and "Don't worry the Sox suck too" with a big Baltimore Orioles on the back.
  7. I'm pretty quickly going from "what is hopefully elias' final tankathon season" to "what is hopefully Elias' final season". I just don't see it. I honestly think we see another 2 years of very mediocre team play until he is fired or the team is sold and he is fired by a new owner.
  8. Tampa does this tho they are very selective. They signed Lowe last year. They have signed Longoria and Archer in the past and thats just off the top of my head I am sure there are more.
  9. This looks like it could possibly be another miss from the Orioles. Teams that operate the way the Orioles want to operate dont really have the luxury of too many misses, they have to be able to evaluate and squeeze value out of every asset in the organization. They need to sell on the high and buy on the low and I have yet to see Elias show me that skill.
  10. We don't need a guy who can't hit a 51 mph pitch. /s
  11. I'm starting to be surprised anyone thinks Elias can evaluate talent. It seems to be his biggest blind spot. The defense on this team has gone backwards, the best parts of the major league team 3 years in are still products of the last leadership group.
  12. They don't have the okay from this ownership group to sign anyone to an appreciable extension so he will be gone. Its too bad but they are cleaning the pantry still and not interested in competing despite this being year three. No pitching. No defense. A very thin lineup.
  13. For a young bullpen this guy just not the starter this team needs. Maybe start him after a two inning opener.
  14. This entire thread kind of seems like debating over whether you should drive the Accord or the Altima when you have a Porsche coming in on back order.
  15. Yea, and the Yankees prospects are always the second coming of murderers row. Sometime you have to be your own hype man.
