Ruben Amaro and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

It was not a great day for Ruben Amaro on Thursday. Perhaps the most important day of the season for a general manager flew by without any movement from the Phillies front office, Amaro opting to stand pat more so because he felt the other general managers were not playing the same game as he.
