Should we go after Jeff Luhnow?

No.. But whose to say Houston isn’t going to come Elias. If I were Houston that’s who I’d go after. I mean whose more qualified to take over the Astros than him? I mean after all Elias and Sig are largely responsible for that team. 

It would be tampering and they could write another check to Manfred.

It’s not tampering if they were to offer a higher position than the current position he holds. Is that a possibility?

The Astros are getting a lot of bad press. Poaching another Teams employee would make it worse. I expect them to promote from within.

To be clear, Elias is under contract.    He cannot he contacted about another position in MLB without the Orioles’ consent.    By custom, teams allow their employees to talk with other teams about jobs that constitute a promotion.    But that’s a custom, not a legal requirement.     Some argued that the job Toronto offered Duquette was a promotion.     Peter Angelos didn’t care.    He had the right to preclude Toronto from talking to Duquette, and he exercised it.

Elias isn't going anywhere, IMO.  He's under contract to the O's.  No way they let him go.  Plus, I doubt Elias or Crane would want it anyway.  Elias wants to distance himself from this whole deal, why would we want to go back and give the optic of "same old, same old?"  Same thing for Crane really.  He wants to turn the page and put this to rest.  If he were to bring Elias back, it presents that same bad optic.
