The Phils have extended Ruben Amaro, Jr.’s Contract.

Earlier today, the Phils have announced that they have extended General Manager Ruben Amaro, Jr.’s contract. Amaro has signed a four-year extension with the Phils a day after the team had signed manager Charlie Manuel to a two-year extension of his contract. This means that Amaro will be the Phils’ General Manager through 2015, helping to keep things stable at the top for the next few years.

Here’s to hoping that he’ll be making some more deals that’ll help the team during that time. Time to really start earning, Ruben.

Good for him.
He has kept the bulk of a very competitve team together while adding some pitching toold that woiuld be the envy of most teams. As is usually the course for the Phillies, a few Spring bumps and bruises have some worried, but Amaro’s probably has a few alternatives cooking on the back burners in case of extended unpleasant results.
That is what good GM’s do, they plan for the worse, then celebrate the best. Finding that middle ground is the hardest, but rewarding someone for keeping their team at the top in talent and overall record….this contract was almost a sure thing.

Couldn’t agree more, and I could not put it better myself.

He is certainly doing the best he can, and he has, so far, done a lot of good things for the Phils. I just hope he can keep it up.
