* I heard at the Winter Meetings that the contract of executive vice president and general manager Mike Elias runs for five years. No one in the organization has offered confirmation.


If true, I guess we know when the front office expects to see upward movement in the standings.

ESPN’s Eddie Matz rated the Orioles’ hiring of Mike Elias as the best winter move so far of any team in baseball.   http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/25590419/mlb-best-worst-come-holiday-week

I dont know, the Dodgers money laundering operation through the reds seems pretty good.

Elias is a pretty good one though, and there ha ent been any free agent deals where I was just floored at how low the deal was.

“The front office’s input in a coaching staff is more advisory for consent purpose. Advisory purposes. That is really the way we like to approach a lot of hires,” Elias said. “You know, get a lot of opinions from people that will be working closely with these folks. Put our heads together and share our notes. But you know, it’s my philosophy that the manager is the person that will be working the closest with the coaches, and his opinion will be the most important one in this process.”

Elias has referred to the players as the “customers” in this relationship and said the front office wants to “to cater that information to them, the way they think, the way they operate their needs. It’s a cooperative, back-and-forth relationship and experience if you do it properly.”
