on a press tour promoting my t-shirts speaking to Jim Salisbury yesterday about a whole bunch of negative things brought on by his tenure as GM, decided to dig in on the fans:
While it’s not out of the question that Eflin could earn a big-league look later this season, Amaro remains adamant that neither pitcher will be rushed.
“I think we’re going to be conservative,” he said.
That often does not sit well with fans who want to see the Phillies be aggressive with their prospects.
“They don’t understand the game,” Amaro said. “They don’t understand the process. There’s a process. And then they bitch and complain because we don’t have a plan. There’s a plan in place and we’re sticking with the plan. We can’t do what’s best for the fan. We have to do what’s best for the organization so the fan can reap the benefit of it later on. That’s the truth.”
And then they bitch and complain because we don’t have a plan. There’s a plan in place and we’re sticking with the plan!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazeballs, the size of Amaro’s balls. I thought this was satire on The Coggin Toboggan when I first read it. Here’s a guy who has completely torn apart one of the best teams in baseball, with one of the biggest payrolls in baseball, and done so in a way that leaves them with hardly any major prospects in their farm system. He’s being passed by every team in the league in both understanding and implementation of analytics. He doesn’t know the different between an at-bat and a plate appearance. He hired a manager who’s an idiot. And yet, it’s the fans who don’t understand the game. OH MY GOD. BUY THE SHIRT! BUY ALL THE SHIRTS!!!
