Based on what I'm reading about Amaro, I think the MO this season and the offseason is to keep the core together and move some temporary pieces with value, like Juan Pierre this season. The offseason I think they look to resign Hamels, re-ink or replace Victorino and and replace Polanco.

I get that this season is pretty much done, but I think the core deserves a mulligan, and I think Amaro plans on giving them one. I mean, I said it before, I don't think this team has declined from a 102 win season to 10+ under .500 due to aging and loss of talent, I think it's MOSTLY due to injuries. There's no way their fall from grace is that sudden. I think Amaro gives the core another shot, and I think they've earned it. Let's face it, this season has gone this way due to injuries, not the core group under performing. I think if Utley, Howard and Halladay are healthy all year, we're in a division race right now. And I think they've earned a shot to prove they're still viable next year.
