Mike Gill on Ruben Amaro
Mike Gill spends this segment talking about the tenure of Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro and why he likens him to a WWE wrestler always able to get a 'cheap pop' and his inability to make a shrewd move. Any old GM could make a trade for Roy Oswalt or Hunter Pence, but can you make the smart, shrewd move to improve your team. Also, Phillies fans can finally rejoice! The Michael Martinez era is over as he has signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Farewell!
Greg Colman provided our outside view from the Minnesota Vikings perspective. Coleman does sidelines for KFAN and said that the instability at the QB position is one of the main reasons why this team has only won 3 games this season. Injuries to the secondary have also contributed to their struggles as well. The Vikings have also lost multiple games late in the 4th quarter not being able to finish off their opponent. On AP: Coleman wouldn't be surprised if he played because of the year he had last season coming off the ACL tear
Covering the Phillies for MLB.com is home fresh off his trip to Orlando at the annual GM meetings where the Phillies came away with just one transaction: Roberto Hernandez. Zo said that the Phillies were not close on trading any of their big name pieces in Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels or Domonic Brown. Zo also gives us an in depth look as to how these crazy rumors get spread out to the public. Note: It's pretty much a baseball version of 'Whisper Down the Lane.' Follow Zolecki on Twitter.
