VIDEO: Thoughts In Passing Podcast: A For Amaro! Ruben (Finally!) Holds Phillies Accountable!!!

Just a thought:

I’ve been waiting for this, the moment when Ruben Amaro finally puts a stop to all the enabling, all the outsourcing of accountability, all the wiping of the Phillies noses — all by virtue of constantly wheeling and dealing at the trade deadline to bail them out.

Need proof? Try the convergence of three years of blockbuster mid- and off-season acquisitions (Lee, Oswalt, Pence during the season and Halladay, Lee and Papelbon during the offseason) and three years of a stepwise descent toward mediocrity.

But, per his commentary yesterday, no more.

Said Ruben Amaro, when asked what trade he might be making and when:

“The players have to figure out a way to play better.”

To which I reply with rapture. Good work, Rube.
