It's not gonna get any better until Howard, Utley and all the old guard are gone. The Phillies had a shot to begin the rebuild by selling off pieces this year, but instead, they want to extend Utley (for what I believe is basically face recognition for the fanbase to sell tickets). I don't blame Amaro for "going for it", but I don't have much faith that he can rebuild this team into a winner.
To be fair really none of the prospects he's traded has turned out to be noteworthy at this point in the bigs.
