Ruben Taking the Heat
David Murphy of the Daily News really lets Ruben have it in this article. It all revolves around Amaro’s recent comment “I have to trust my scouts on it”. I’ll let you read the article without saying much on it, but what he writes is very true.
Here’s an article from Matt Gelb of the Inquirer. The interesting this there is that some owners have criticized the Phillies for moving too fast on Byrd before the market formed, and perhaps overpaying him. They believe, then, that now the market is set too high. Amaro did this before and overpaid for Papelbon.
