Well, as a Phillies fan, it's pretty depressing. Of course, I've known for a few years now that Ed Wade is a putz. His complete and utter botching of the Schilling deal (which alone should have been enough to get him canned), and then the Rolen deal pretty much sealed it. Then, if you look at the trades he has made in-season over the years that he has been GM, it all adds up. When the best trade you make in-season is acquiring Robert Person for Paul Spoljaric, well, that's pretty pathetic. When it was posted here earlier today that the Reds and Phillies were about to make a deal (posted by Will, was it?), I knew that had Cory Lidle written all over it. So to answer your question, it says that our GM is an idiot. :thumbdn:
