    ” Since Drew/Boras, this is a very personal thing to the Phillies owners. “

    The Phillies drafted Drew for the sole purpose of stopping another team from paying Drew. The Phillies were told the price was an $11 million major league contract before the draft. They took Drew anyway and then Giles appeared in public and very loudly announced that they would offer Drew exactly what Kris Benson received the year before and not one dollar more. There was never a negotiation. It was take $2.8 million or back into the draft. The Phillies ultimatum was outrageous and had no chance of success. Travis Lee had already been paid $10 million by the Diamondbacks.

    The Phillies deliberately sacrificed the 2nd overall selection in the draft just to publicly punch Scott Boras in the nose. The Phillies are currently in the middle of a Thirty Years War with Scott Boras that they started.

    The Phillies deliberately f**ked over Kyle Lohse in 2007. They pretended to be interested in signing him but they were only interested in punching his agent Scott Boras in the nose. The result was a one year deal with St. Louis.

    Ryan Madson? Same thing. Same one year contract result.

    Jayson Werth won. I’ll forever have love in my heart for Jayson. He might be the only rich man I like. Jayson shoved his fist up Montgomery’s anus and publicly asked him how it felt.

    STUD.

    I hope Domonic Brown – and his agent Scott Boras – do the same thing.

    You don’t like the Choo-Choo Train?

    F**k you.

    “The most frustrating thing is that the Phillies ownership obviously care about how much money they spend. This is ironic. Because there is no better dollar for dollar investment than amateur talent.”

    This is true. However, the “economics of MLB” are not public. What seems to be true is often not so due to a lack of public disclosure.

    The Phillies don’t operate like the Yankees and Red Sox. They are extremely tight with The Godfather Bud. The Phillies aren’t tight with Bud because they like the smell of his anal fumes.

    Think “Revenue Sharing”. It’s a big stinking pot of corruption. The Phillies don’t pay into the pot, they receive money from it. The Yankees unhappiness with this arrangement is what lead to Bobby Abreu being given to the Yankees for nothing.

    The media in Philadelphia simply looked away and lied to the public about this transaction. They knew then and they know now. They will not tell the people.

    @Philliestalk,

    What are you quoting? Your comments are questionable, (You love Werth and Boras? Really?) and worse, irrelevant to the article. Go find a soapbox somewhere.
