Ruben Amaro Jr. Says the Phillies Stink

Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. was on 94 WIP this morning to discuss the team’s state of affairs. In doing so, he mention that, “we stink right now.” Not an inaccurate description, but good news is on the horizon in the fact that Ryan Howard will probably, but maybe not, but almost definitely be in the lineup for the Phils on Friday as they take on the Braves at Citizens Bank Park. Also, Amaro addressed the looming trade deadline and that the team’s performance between now and July 31st will dictate whether the team is buying or having a fire… sale. [Crossing Broad]
