Phillies interested in Josh Hamilton, Cody Ross

Apparently Ruben Amaro apparently woke up today and said “I think I wanna aggravate my entire fan base.”

 

The Ross thing would anger the hardcore rah-rah Phillies fans who are likely still mad at Ross for abusing Roy Halladay in the 2010 playoffs. The Hamilton thing would anger the more stats-oriented guys who worry about albatross contracts and locking up players past their prime.

I mean, on some level they’d like it because it could refresh the Ryan Howard trolling which is a lot of fun, but at the end of the day, I don’t think anyone trusts Ruben Amaro not to overpay Hamilton.
