Warehouse Pod Ep. 40 – Grading Elias’ First Trade Deadline

The trade deadline came and went with little action from the Orioles who were thought to be having a fire sale. At the end of it, Givens, Villar all remain with the club. How did the Orioles hold onto their most valuable assets when they have a minor league system that needs to be bolstered? Did the Orioles let a golden opportunity pass them by? Did Mike Elias hold onto Mychal Givens just so that “The Warehouse Podcast” could continue to talk about him relentlessly?

On this episode of “The Warehouse Podcast”, we grade Mike Elias’s first grade deadline. We talk about our personal disappointment with the lack of trade line developments, and where the Orioles stand moving forward. We also talk about how little sense it makes for the Orioles to extend the contract of Trey Mancini. Lastly, we choose not to sugarcoat our lack of interest in seeing Mark Trumbo return from the injured list.

As always, you can listen or subscribe to the podcast on all of the major audio platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, TuneIn & Spotify. Or you can give us a follow @TheWarehousePod on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook.
