The Ghost of Phillies Past

The Phillies’ Class A minor league teams are now a combined 36 and 86 for a winning percentage of .295.

The farm system is a direct measure of Ruben Amaro’s skills and the organization’s commitment to fielding a winner over the long run.

The higher minors are better. Reading is 30-29. Lehigh Valley is 32-31, in other words, absolute mediocrity.

So while we  can look forward to mediocrity, it only gets worse from there.

It’s the ghost of Phillies past. But will Scrooge- the Phillies owners- see the light?  The only way we’ll know is if Maitre d’ Monty and headwaiter Ruben are shown the door, unceremoniously. This house needs a thorough cleaning. Otherwise the stench of the cronyism that has been the hallmark of this organization will remain and poison the future as well.
