Ruben Amaro Jr On Trading For Albert Pujols

New, 1 comment

If you've listened to Mike Missanelli on 97.5 The Fanatic in the past week, you'll have probably heard him pushing his "what if" scenario about the Phillies potentially swapping Ryan Howard for Albert Pujols, since the latter failed to reach a deal with the St. Louis Cardinals. Mostly he's just kicked around the idea with Jayson Stark and some callers, but then he finally had a chance to ask Phillies GM Ruben Amaro about it. Specifially he asked, "If the Cardinals called you today and said we'll trade you Albert Pujols for Ryan Howard knowing you would have to give him a ten-year contract would you?"

Ruben's response would have sent The Good Phight's famous smug advisory system off the charts. Not that Mikey Miss didn't deserve it mind you...

"That's a very silly question. It one of the most silly [questions]. You know it's one question one wouldn't answer. That's the silliness. We have a great first basemen. We're very happy with him."
