Reagan's Wisdom

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.

 Phillies Phire Sale
The Phillies are officially sellers as the trade deadline approaches. If your last name is not Utley, Howard, Hamels, or Madsen, you are tradeable. Let me reiterate that, you are dumpable. See, the Phils did not get anything but a couple of minor league prospects for their trades. They could have gotten a case of batting practice balls and it would have been the same.

I am not thrilled with the trades, I am not angered, but my decision will come with the team that takes the field next season. In dropping Abreu, Lidle, Bell and Cormier, and with the ending of contracts at the end of this season, the Phillies payroll will be $43 million less than this year. Does Gillick take that money and get top free agent pitchers, a great 3rd baseman and great catcher? Or does this awful ownership group take that money and put it in their own back pockets, screwing the fans yet again?

The benefits of these trades may not be seen for years, but if Gillick is given the ability to follow his model of building a team, this could be the beginning of great things to come. He did this in Toronto, and within a few years, they won 2 World Series. He traded Griffey Jr. and let A-Rod go, and the following season the Mariners won 116 games. Gillick knows what he is doing, the question will be whether or not the ownership lets him do his job.
