I won't lie, the Braves signing Travis Snider the other day stung a little here.
Tejada still has him by 2407-2388. I half feel that if Diaz has to wait 6 weeks - I'd rather it be for Markakis than DJ Stewart.
Edwin Encarnacion is the only one ahead of him in Service Time among the unsigned FA in Fangraphs tracker.
I don’t see how you can have total trust in a guy, a guy who has barely been here relatively speaking and then question his methods and evaluation of talent. It doesn’t make much sense.
It’s not like Elias has some history as a GM to give him the benefit of the doubt. His only history that is really positive is working with the Astros, where he was a scout and talent evaluator and worked the draft.
