Players and Fans Cheated Again

Playing in a stadium that sells out more than Cabbage Patch Dolls on Black Friday,the Phillies organization once again failed to come through prior to the trade deadline. Having a roster with two formers MVP’s, Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins along with stars like Chase Utley, Pat Burrell and Cole Hammels, who by the way are all home grown talent. The Phillies brass showed that they obviously don’t care about their players or their extremely loyal fans. Seeing players like C.C. Sabathia, Mark Teixeira and Rich Harden move on to contenders must be real frustrating to both the players and the fans. The bottom line for this team is “Money”, and not a World Series and that is a real shame. The reprecussions of this will be at the termination of star players contracts when they will opt to move to a team that will spend the extra dollars to deliver a championship. The owners should know that the window of opportunity does not come along that often and as a result they must surpass their budget to be a real World Series candidate.
