Amaro: Dumber, Stupid, Brain Cramp?

 
Who here thinks Amaro is dumb, stupid, etc.?  All of you; that's what I thought.  Pat Gillick doesn't think so...
"Because I've got confidence in him. He didn't all of a sudden get dumber. People don't want to hear this, but there were five years from 2007-11 [with success], and the last year in 2011, we won 102 games. He didn't all of a sudden get stupid the last three years. There were just a lot of factors to factor in there. And it isn't what you've done in the past, it's what are you doing for us now. And we haven't done anything the last three years. But as far as him getting a brain cramp or something, it hasn't happened. I have confidence in him. I've got his back." ~Pat Gillick

Talks of Byrd to O's. Bet Phillies get a very questionable "prospect" and crap reliever, and they eat part of Byrds contract. In other words, the stndard fleecing of Amaro.

Rumor: Bastardo to BoSox for Sean Coyle (2nd base prospect with a little pop and speed). Would probably be a fair trade. Would be nice to get another low level prospect in return too.

Rumor: Hamels and Rollins to Dodgers.

Hamels is one of the best SP in the game and believe it or not, J-Roll is still one of the best SS. They better receive a buttload of talent back, should that deal go down. Seriously, Hamels shouldn't be dealt for anything less than an amazing package.

GM-Carson said...

If Amaro gets ripped off by the Dodgers in this Rollins deal I don't know if I can take anymore. Jimmy is a franchise stalwart and a Top 20 SS of all time. Amaro better not screw this up.

GM-Carson said...

Bastardo heading to Pittsburgh. Posts forthcoming...likely tomorrow.

Amaro stopped picking his nose

Robert Dalton said...

Dodgers traded with Miami and got some prospects which could trigger a Hamels trade yet

GM-Carson said...

Bastardo traded for piece of shit minor leaguer

Bob D said...

Bastardo to Pirates for Minor League starter.
JRoll to Dodgers for unknown
Rumored that Byrd and Howard to Orioles. Not sure if it is true yet.
And now Hamels and Utley to Dodgers could be added to JRoll trade or separately

GM-Carson said...

There is no way the Dodgers have enough to make a trade of Hamels, Utley, and J-Roll worth it. Unless they're giving us Greinke, Kershaw, and Puig. I f'n hate Amaro!

Bob D said...

Yeah, the others are not happening - at least not likely

Kendrick to Dodgers, so no Utley trade. Whew! He should be a Phillie for life. I was hoping Rollins would at least get another year in - he already had 15.

Dodgers also signed a pitcher too. Hamels trade less likely there

Amaro is a puppet GM. Not a real GM.
