Mike Elias has made his first hire with the Baltimore Orioles. Yesterday he announced that he was bringing Sid Mejdal aboard as his Asst. General Manager. It’s a move that had been anticipated since news leaked of Elias’ hiring.
Mejdal will oversee all analytics efforts, and assist Elias in all baseball operations decisions. Like Elias, he comes to the Orioles from the Houston Astros’ organization, where he was the special assistant to the GM. He also worked for NASS for a period. A unique set of skills for sure.
That said, a very Happy Thanksgiving goes out to all Orioles fans across the country today. Enjoy your family, friends, foods, and all of the football games today!
