Happy Tuesday Bunters!!

We have a long way to go until the 2011 MLB trade deadline but the local and national baseball media is beginning to stir.

Ruben Amaro Jr. has publically stated that he is satisfied with the Phillies offense despite growing fan concerns with the lack of bat productions – particularly of the right handed kind. When RAJ begins to speak on trade rumors, you have to take it for what it’s worth (or NOT Werth… ha! Ok, lame). Halladay, Lee, Oswalt... Clearly this man knows if and when to make a move. He also knows when to bluff or keep his mouth shut.

Soooooo…. What will Ruben do?
After last year’s stealth acquisition of Clifton Phifer Lee in the off season, I would probably be more inclined to ask this: What couldn’t Ruben do?!

Maybe Amaro is telling the truth, that he has no major moves planned for the Phillies and as of June he believes the offense is good enough to get us through the regular season and deep into the post-season. That’s not to say come July his opinion of the state of the offense (or the trade potential) could change.

Fortunately, RAJ is neither my husband nor my boss. If he needs to excuse himself to take late night, hushed-tone phone calls so be it.

In Ruben we trust.

The Phillies served up a different kind of ‘W’ last night at Citizens Bank Park. According to Phillies.com, the annual Phillies Phestival raised $893,000.00. Nice job by both the Phils organization and the fans.

Marlins @ Phillies preview:
Our 40-26 Fightins start a 4-game home stand tonight with against the Florida Marlins.
The 7.5 games back Fish (32-33) went under .500 last nights after a loss to Arizona. Hamels could tie Halladay with his 9th win of the season tonight. Go Cole J

  1. I have heard Jim Thome's named mentioned. He would be a Matt Stairs type pinch hitter. If Rube can get him I'm all for it. With the way Dom Brown is playing they might have enough offense.
