Amaro: Lee Rumors False

Cliff LeeA report earlier today in Nashville had the Phillies talking about a trade that would send Cliff Lee to Arizona for Justin Upton.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. dumped on it in his daily meeting with reporters.

“That would be incorrect and false,” he said. “I don’t know where that would come from, but as you all well know, there are a lot of falsehoods out there and that is absolutely one of them.”

That would be a mistake. Don’t trade Lee. We need to keep the rotation as strong as we can.

DO NOT TRADE LEE!!!

The talk of trading Lee has been absurd since midseason of last year – he is a top 5 pitcher in the NL, he is the type of player you want on your team, under contract. Without him, you have Hamels and a 50/50 shot at Halladay being healthy and what else???

As much as I like Lee, I would love for this deal to go through. Cliff is only going to be getting older and Upton is still a 25-year-old potential MVP. Make it happen, Ruben!

The lack of Amaro doing nothing significant since the Lee deall 3 years ago comes down to being Cheap and not willing to spend the goods to get the real good players. I am not spending my money to go see a boring team .He acts like they have won multiple World Series and when we won who was the General manager ??…..we need Gillick to come back to show Amaro how to bring a championship to the team…..he surely doesn’t have a clue !!!!!!

Furthermore….If Amaro says he is interested In Josh Hamilton…. PUT UP THE MONEY HE WANTS AND STOP PLAYING AROUND …HE IS GOING TO COST MONEY SO STOP trying to be thrifty…..NOBODY LIKES A CHEAP G.M……GO FO IT AND STOP WINDOW SHOPPING

One of the topics says Amaro is going to have to be creative: Here is something – Try moving Howard or Utley….if nobody wants them why do we need them…..I just heard Bubble head praise Howard ……What did he watch from the bench….How many times do you have to watch Howard swing in the dirt…..He was last in HItting for ALL MAJOR LEAGUE HITTERS……. HOWS THAT , HE STINKS <STINKS< STINKS

Arizona is going to get rid of Upton because of his near future earning potential and take Cliff Lee with his huge salary over the next several years? Who sits up at night and dreams this crap up?
