I mean, he put together a pretty terrible team on purpose. He wouldn't have put together this gaggle of mediocrity if his goal wasn't to tank.
I can't imagine he'd be stoked if the O's make the playoffs and he can't go underslot with a top five pick. Like MurphDog mentioned - I think he'd be excited if the players of the future propel the O's to that success, but there really aren't any players like that even on the roster besides Hays and Means.
Probably all part of Elias' master plan to have this team lose. Send one of best relievers to an NL East team to help them beat us. i give the Marlins credit a bit, even though they are a rebuilding team, they are at least trying a bit to put on a competing team. Meanwhile the Orioles are trading away any decent player and running Chris Davis out there every night.
