LOL with the subtitle, "The Baltimore Orioles might have been able to make a run in 2023 if they pulled off this trade for a legendary starting pitcher."
As if winning the AL East and top seed in the playoffs isn't "making a run."
Sheesh, journalism these days.
He was somewhat optimistic on Bautista.But much more on Bradish. Time will tell.
Elias says it's possible Bautista will pitch again this season; Orioles taking 'conservative approach' with closer - BaltimoreBaseball.com
This. I’m cautiously optimistic about seeing Bradish pitch this year because Elias generally keeps things close to vest, and when he does reveal information, he seems to be fairly honest about it (like his update on Bautista last year, with the not so good news).
I can’t imagine John Angelos agreeing to take on enough of Verlander’s contract to make a trade viable. Or the Mets would have gotten a king’s ransom to assume a majority of Verlander’s remaining contract.
