If someone — anyone — has a clue what the Phillies’ grand plan is, I’d love to hear it. I’m sure anyone would:
The Phillies have indicated to other teams they are ready and willing to talk about Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels in trades.

I suppose that you could get a lot of building blocks for those guys. But if you’re building, why did you sign Carlos Ruiz and Marlon Byrd and make those other short-term, win-now moves they’ve made so far this offseason?
Seriously: what the heck is Ruben Amaro doing?
