As some of you saw last week, Sports Illustrated, a once great magazine whose letting-go of Rick Reilly still puzzles me, layed another egg. In Tim Marchman’s rating, they said Ruben Amaro, Jr. was the 19th best GM in all of major league baseball. 19th? NINETEENTH? You have got to be kidding me! Before I completely rip … Continue reading 19th?

Brown, Aumont Crack MLB 50

MLB.com released their Top 50 prospects of 2010 and the Phillies own outfielder Domonic Brown and pitcher Phillippe Aumont cracked the list with Brown at 14 and Aumont at 47. Shockingly pithing phenom Stephen Strasburg of the Nationals is second on the list and not first. That honor goes to outfielder Jason Heyward of Atlanta.

Manuel Misses Lee; Loses Weight

Uncle Chollie misses Cliff Lee already and wishes the Phillies would have held onto him to team up with Roy Halladay. In a perfect world, we wish it was possible. “Halladay is the best pitcher in baseball right now. Lee is a tad behind him. Of course it would’ve been nice to have both of them,” Manuel said Tuesday. … Continue reading Manuel Misses Lee; Loses Weight
