RUBEN AMARO RUMORS & GOSSIP

End of season post-mortem: Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies just don’t know when to quit. They really should quit. It was another season of the Phillies trying to win with almost the exact same roster that lost 89 games the year before, only older. As you, but not Ruben Amaro Jr., probably guessed, it didn’t go very well. Preseason Prediction: I think third place is the ceiling for the Phillies, and the bottom of the National...

On Tuesday, the team’s top prospect, Maikel Franco, made his major league debut. That was followed on Wednesday by Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez pitching in his first big league game. August was...

Phillies Ace- Jerome Williams

When Ruben Amaro shoveled Jerome Williams out of the garbage heap of released players without employment, it was out of necessity, not genius.  Well, Amaro is rocking a smug smirk now that Williams has pitched brilliantly through his first 4 starts with the Phillies.  Let's jut hope Amaro doesn't extend him for 3 YR/$30M, because 4 starts is an extremely small sample size...

Ruben Amaro, Jr.: Phillies May Take Not Contend in 2015 and 2016

For the Phillies, 2012, 2013 and 2014 have been much of a step back. The five straight division championships that included two National League pennants are long gone. Now, after three years of stepping back, the Phillies have an admission from management: the Phillies may need a step back before...

Amaro’s comments to ESPN turn some heads

Ruben Amaro Jr. has raised some eyebrows with some of the things he has said during the Phillies’ dismal past two seasons, but his comments on Monday take the cake. Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com posted a story about the Phillies in which he extensively quoted Amaro, and a few of his comments are real head-scratchers. Per Crasnick’s article: “I can’t worry about whether I’m...
