    Marlon Byrd is “one of the most productive right-handed bats in the game” if “the game” refers to tonight’s game against the Nationals.

    Amaro called Marlon Byrd “one of the most productive righthanded bats in the game.”

    Yea I think the list of top right-handed bats goes:
    1. Mike Trout
    2. Andrew McCutchen
    3. Marlon Byrd

    What a joke…

    The man is a disgusting pig. I don’t understand how he wasn’t first at 4:01 PM.

    The GM that inherited a team and drove them steadily from first to worst criticizes other GMs. He is “surprised” at what happened. Let’s translate… Amaro has just admitted that he doesn’t understand the market and is too arrogant to admit it so he lashes out at others. As a Philly sports fan I’ve seen a lot of management for the city’s teams over the years but I have never seen such continued incompetence ever. This man is the Cal Ripken of incompetence. I will not watch another game until this cancer is removed from the organization.

    PLEASE fire Amaro. Enough is enough. They are postponing getting back to relevance.
