This is from his Wikipedia page:

Quote:
His performance with the Phillies was unlike his predecessor;[11] in May 2014, Sporting News ranked Amaro the worst general manager in Major League Baseball, noting his propensity to sign aging veterans who fail to perform at a level commensurate with their contract.[12] He was removed from his position with the Phillies on September 10, 2015


:) Well thank goodness he's not going to be the GM.



That's largely over the Ryan Howard contract.

The Phils acquired Crawford, Altherr, Nola, Hoskins, Alfaro & Nick Williams while he was GM, as well as some of their better prospects in what is one of the leagues best systems right now. His tenure as GM is looking a lot better now than when it did in 2014, which btw included 3 straight playoff years during his tenure iirc.


It was largely the Howard contract, but it was also a lack of creativity that closed their window quicker than it should have.

Whenever they had a hole, they tried to fill it with the same player that made that hole or by signing a declining veteran. It wasn't smart for sustained success.

Interesting. Had not heard his name as a candidate. I would have preferred someone with some NL experience frankly. Manager, pitching coach and bench coach are all AL guys.

Sherlock is an NL guy, so they might be covered there. I don't think it will have a significant impact.

So at the end of the day the "NL" stuff meant absolutely nothing, just as I suspected.
