Maybe he should have started off saying, "Do you know how much I've spent in salaries in the last 5 years that the Phillies have done so poorly?"
And of course the answer would have been an absurd amount of aroundn $821M and not produced that much as a GM of a baseball team.
Ruben Amaro has had the company check book taken away from him for some time now though. The insane signings have stopped for the long term. In it's place though, there's been a lot of bad short term signings.
Ruben, with all do respect, you should have also just resigned in the failure that you have been as a GM to get good things going on with this baseball team. We don't want to hear anymore of your 'plans' such as your prospect plan.
