It's ok to give out large contracts at times, but Amaro and his staff just don't seem to have any idea as to how to properly structure a contract or who best to give these contracts to(Howard case in point).
the breadth of amaro's incompetence is really impressive. think about the things that might be important for a general manager
the worst part is, i'm pretty sure he'll still be employed by the phillies 10 years from now. if ed wade still gets a paycheck from this team, why not amaro.
And, sure, the next owners could be worse than the guy who owns the Marlins. But... they could also be as good as the folks who bought the Red Sox from the Yawkey Trust. Yes, it's a crapshoot, but right now what you DO know is that your ownership sucks and has not one clue about how to run a baseball team in 2014.
this ownership isn't going to sell the team. i'm pretty sure they can't. about a decade ago, bill conlon wrote about the structure of the ownership group and it's pretty clearly designed to be impossible to break up.
Bill Giles hired David Montgomery in 1971 to work in the Phillies' ticket sales office and he later became Sales Director.
Cliff Lee is the Jose Bautista of pitchers:
Downing was a steroids guy, so there was an obvious explanation for his leap. I agree that the technique / intangible changes are far more interesting.
ownership has been okey-dokey with complete idiots being GM for almost 13 of the past 16 years.
Downing sure gets a lot more accusations than another player who put on muscle through weightlifting at the same time and started hitting homers. A guy who even made it to 3000 hits and the HOF.
