Executive vice president and general manager Mike Elias, speaking about the Mancini trade on Monday, said, “I have to tether my decisions to the outlook and the probabilities of this year,” outlining that while the Orioles have a chance at a Wild Card spot, “it it is not a probability that we're going to win a Wild Card.”
Why not dumb ass!?
For one thing, too many teams to climb over. Fangraphs gave them a 5 percent chance at the playoffs. 2023 is more likely. Elias is a realist.
