Having a person of low intellect running an enterprise worth hundreds of millions of dollars is certainly a festering problem, but the results of one spring training game have nothing to do with anything.
Except that Amaro has consistently done stupid thing after stupid thing since the day he got the job. If he has any intelligence he's done a marvelous job hiding it.
That's absurd. Intelligence is tremendously important for GMs, as it is for almost every white collar job, and more so the higher in authority you climb.
They'd be better off completely tanking, getting a protected Top-10 pick, and then surveying what FA they can sign with whatever excess room under the cap they have for 2015. No one who won the WS with them in 2008 (outside of maybe Hamels) is going to be a part of the next great Phillies team, so they might as well get started on building the system up... But I suppose that requires people who know what they're doing to be in charge of the draft and to draft well.
He hasn't developed well, he extended Howard. That's the extent of Amaro's obvious stupidity.
We have had only two presidents with advanced academic degrees -Woodrow Wilson was a Ph.D and George Bush had a Harvard MBA. Harry Truman never went past high school. I am having trouble drawing a conclusion here due to a limited sample.
