When the Philadelphia Phillies and GM Ruben Amaro Jr. failed to make a trade at the MLB trade deadline last Thursday, the organization in general and Amaro in particular were at an all-time low in popularity in the city. Philadelphians dealt with the issue through some humor via twitter. Here are some of the best reactions.
Considering that Philippe Aumont was the best acquisition in the two Cliff Lee trades, this is a particularly depressing thought.
Cartoonist Rob Tornoe always has a humorous take on Philadelphia sports and this cartoon about the Phillies’ GM was no exception.
The night of the trade deadline, Cliff Lee blew out his arm. Maybe Amaro might have thought he was asking for too much.
ESPN's Buster Olney had this gem to point out Amaro was being hypocritical.
A local Philadelphia TV guy, John Borak, points out that Amaro was deflecting the blame for his own ineptitude here.

Archie Bradley continued to struggle for his fourth consecutive outing since coming off of the DL. It would be wise for the Arizona Diamondbacks to send him down to retune. Read More
