Amaro Denies Howard Trade Report

Ruben Amaro Jr. denied a report that the Phillies have discussed proposing a Ryan Howard for Albert Pujols swap.

ESPN.com reported the Cardinals might trade Pujols if they cannot sign him to a contract extension. Howard would be a fit because he is a St. Louis native. Both players become free agents after the 2011 season.

“It’s ridiculous,” Amaro said. “It’s unequivocally false. It’s unfair to Ryan. It’s unfair to the organization to have to answer the questions.”

Wow that would be an amazing trade. Even if St. Louis signed Howard to an extension and the Phils lost Pujols. We won’t be able to afford Howard after 2011 anyway. Get ‘er done Ruben! :-)

Oy.

Buster Olney is either a liar or a moron. Take your pick!
