Orioles Believe They Can Fix Aaron Hicks! Hahahahaha

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

What the French toast is going on in Baltimore? I am convinced that Orioles Executive Vice President and General Manager Mike Elias might be just as useless at talent evaluation as Brian Cashman is AND has no appreciation for baseball cards. We’ll get to the baseball cards in a minute….

By now we all know that Aaron Hicks plays for the Baltimore Orioles. We all rejoice that he is no longer the weak link on our team and can try and rejuvenate with the Orioles. Who knows, maybe it will work. He’s not the first player that couldn’t handle the heavy pinstripes. Maybe playing on a team with less demand will help him find his mojo again. 

That’s exactly what Mike Elias is counting on. They hope they catch lightening in a bottle with Hicks on the team. Maybe they do, but his stats don’t exactly support that. But wait, maybe Elias doesn’t like baseball cards or know how to read the stats on them. So what exactly do the Orioles see in Hicks?
“We have stuff that we look at from a scouting and evaluation perspective that, as I’ve said before, it’s very different from looking at the back of a baseball card,” Elias said. You can read more HERE.

Maybe their scouts have lost their marbles. The stats on the back of Hicks’ baseball card aren’t wrong. His best season with the Yankees was 2018 and ever since then was filled with injury filled seasons where he couldn’t hit, and played subpar defense with a weak arm. Maybe the Orioles don’t value players accurately OR appreciate baseball cards. That was an insult to an avid baseball fan’s card collection.

“You may not get a great outcome on everything, but we see stuff with Aaron Hicks that we like and it feels like a good fit for us,”
Elias said. “I hope this is a shot in the arm for him, and I hope that he helps us out and helps us win some games.” Well Elias, we didn’t get a great outcome on….anything. The Yankees gave him countless opportunities and an extra long leash and the Minnesota Twins tried for three years before the Yankees, nothing worked. By all means though….keep searching for that shot in the arm. We hoped Hicks would help us win games too, but he turned into a huge liability.

I guess this will be the year of second chances. The Mets and Giants saw something they could fix in Gary Sanchez and now the O’s are going to fix Hicks. Okay, sure. I’ll believe it when I see it. Maybe I’m wrong….or maybe Elias devalues baseball cards and insanely over values Hicks.
