Elias needs to move more quickly than that.  I don't see how he can go five seasons in charge without being competitive for a playoff spot.

Frankly he shouldn't.

I agree with you... But picking up guys mostly at A level says 3+ Years to me. Honestly I think the pitching is pretty strong in the minors. I still think they are lacking at positional talent. Especially up the middle.

That is not the point the poster was making. He said it was a simple solution. I said it cost 1.7.  The were never letting him play another game as an Oriole. In Spring or otherwise. 

Yep and had they invested 1.7 million to get to spring training I don’t see how they would’ve cut him at that point.

Do you think he's not moving quickly enough?

I think that in the fifth full season as GM the team should be competing for a playoff spot. 

I've previously stated I think he's not as aggressive with minor league promotions as I would like.

I think Elias would agree that if he's not competing for a playoff spot in the fifth year, then it's not working. I understand things moving a bit slower the first year. Last year at this time, he was still trying to hire a manager and didn't have any of his infrastructure built yet. But I think he's trying to get moves made now and I'm encouraged by where things are so far. 

With promotions, I think there was a lot of change on the pitching side. Guys were encouraged to throw off speed pitches in fastball counts. I generally agree with the idea that that should happen in milb rather than the majors. And I clearly recall your stance on Mountcastle so no need to rehash that.

I agree about the MiL guys. I don't see how they can be remotely competitive in 4-5 years when we consider the lack of help in the lower levels.

 

It will come down to the MiL pitching. Maybe if some of them are actual pieces they could supplement the position player side.
