Elias Progress Thread

Recommended Posts

I do love Elias, but it's June 4 and we have 3 players in tonights starting lineup with BA's under .200.  Way under .200.  Painful.

One of them is now hitting over .200 (and .300 with the Orioles), thirteen minutes after you posted this.

This year and next year are development years. And lots of losing. That's the way rebuilds go. To expect the O's to be competitive or starting certain players service time isn't going to happen. The players that do get called up better perform or they won't be here the next time the O's are winning.

So all teams don't do it you just think the O's should with a RH 1B/DH guy and you figured it wouldn't sound as bad this way.

Corn, it's pretty clear you're just trolling me and I'm not really in the mood for a back and forth. Believe what you want to believe.

He is the fifth highest player in WAR on the team. You know the team that is the worst in the major leagues. The one that is historically terrible.  If he were playing a position I would give him the benefit of the doubt but he is the DH and we already have a bunch of DH's on the team.

Like I said, I'm very skeptical that Mountcastle could do better in his first stink the bigs. He was never a Pete Alonso / Austin Riley type prospect. And again, what does it matter? Even if he were to light the league on fire it wouldn't be enough to suddenly vault this terrible team into contention. This is a lost year. I just want them to call up the prospects in September (to give us a taste) and then give them all a legitimate shot to make the team next year. I've already written off the season and I think (for your sanity) you should do the same.

Enough is enough, DFA Davis, we have guys that could use the playing time, Sisco and Mountcastle among others

Getting rid of Martin and Davis would help my stress level dramatically.  Even if they don't win anymore games neither of those guys belongs being anywhere near a major league field.

Sometimes the moves not made turn out for the best.  We shall see!  But I know that these decisions are part of a definite plan and that is reassuring.

I think a lot will be said in the years ahead about how MEs smartest hire turned out to be Koby Perez. 

I think the hiring of Chris Holt will be up there too.
