Amaro proves how far behind Phillies' front office has fallen

In case there was any doubt of the Phillies' reluctance using advanced metrics, Ruben Amaro recently put the nail in the coffin. In a recent interview with 97.5 The Fanatic's Mike Missanelli, Amaro displayed just how antiquated and comical his thought process in judging a player and how he views the game itself.

In case you missed it, the gist of the uproar come from these statements:
"I don't care about walks, I care about production."
And
"To be frank with ya, I said this all along, all the sabermatricians, all the people who think they know exactly what makes a good club, to me its about ummm its more about run production. Being able to score runs and drive in runs. If i'm not mistaken he even in a year when he really didn't have his best year, he drove in more runs than anybody on our club."
His way of thinking is eerily, and sadly, similar to the vast majority you hear calling into sports talk shows or posting online. The faults of judging players using runs scored and RBI has been discussed ad nauseam. It's as if he has no realization the first step in creating runs is getting on base. And a high walk-rate is vital in augmenting one's ability to reach base.

To put icing on the cake,using his basis for judgement, Amaro praised Delmon Young. "He would be our starter if he proves to us he could play everyday...there's nobody that has more of a track record as far as offense is concerned.” Followed by, "He's a much more accomplished offensive player than Dom Brown.”
The only thing proven about Delmon Young's offense is that it's not very good. Many cite Delmon's 2010 as proof of his ability but simply looking at his career numbers show that year is the outlier, not the norm. Since 2006, his .321 wOBA ranks 265th. That ranks about the same as other offensive luminaries such as Dan Johnson, Jose Vidro, Skip Schumaker, Mike Fontenot, Willy Aybar, Tadahito Iguchi, and Gabe Gross.

When deciding between two players such as Delmong Young and Domonic Brown, I'd rather go with the player who has not proven to suck in over 3000 plate appearances. With Brown, despite what people think, he has not proven yet whether or not he will be successful as less than 500 plate appearances isn't nearly enough time yet. At the very least Brown should get on-base more thanks to walks. But we know Amaro doesn't care about that.

It becomes more and more frustrating to root for a team with such a smug and ignorant leader. With the amount of resources he inherited, there's no reason this team should be in the trouble it's in. And honestly, I do not believe it will get better under his leadership.

  11. Seriously, does that sound like a difficult job to you. Does your partner have the tendency to lie when ask
    about his or her game time. It's no question that these capitalists
    through several forms of mass media and advertising are closing in on the easiest and most vulnerable target
    in the market today- the youth.
