Ed Wade is fired
One World championship in 120 years. 5 appearances in the World Series 1915, 1950, 1980, 1983 and 1993. And people obsess about the Cubs and Red sox futility.
Somebody had to take the fall and take responsibility. The team this year was exciting. They didn't fold down the stretch. I remember all the so called experts saying they would need 90 wins to make the playoffs. But they won 88 and missed the playoffs by a game. They were right.
He signed Jim Thome and Billy Wagner but locked up payroll on Lieberthall, Abreu and Bell.
We need a Billy Bean type guy. There a few experienced GMs out there, I hope the Phillies will grab one.
