Philadelphia Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. doesn’t think his team is the best in baseball.
A guest in the broadcast booth in the eighth inning of the Phillies game Monday afternoon on ESPN, Amaro volunteered his opinion that the Boston Red Sox were the team to beat in 2011.
“I think they’re the best team in baseball,” Amaro said as he watched Phillies beat the Red Sox, 4-1. He also acknowledged that he himself is not as good as Boston GM Theo Epstein.
General consensus is that the Red Sox and Phillies are the two best teams in baseball. Perhaps he was just being modest, but if Amaro doesn’t think his team is number one, why should anyone else?
