Ruben Amaro has a cushion, he is currently the GM of the Philadelphia Phillies the team that won the World Series last year. The moves he's made so far: not too much to write home about. He basically just snubbed Jamie Moyer and Pat Burrell to leave them in limbo for next season as far as solidly making them part of the 2009 team.
In the newspapers, he seems like he's doing the right thing. "I don't want them getting a raise on my account" is what he is saying though. Just because they had such a great season. Other quotes has him just glossing over these two players, theorizing who could be out in leftfield, or who would take Jamie Moyer's spot in the rotation. That's gratitude, the 'new style' exuded from the front office. What have you done for me lately. Certain publications won't go out and say this, because for one reason or another they don't want to really say the truth, but I will! Amaro is the Grinch!
