If we don't win in a few years we'll firesale and re-stock with top prospects.

Let's keep rollin' the dice Wade and see what we get!


you'll get left with pat burrell, rheal cormier, and david bell to huge contracts with no farm system. ;-7

Utley, Howard, Rollins, and Myers all came from farm system while Ed Wade was the GM of the Phillies.

And they helped contribute sneaking into the playoffs due to a Mets collapse, and immediatley get swept by the Rox.

I'm not bashing those guys by any means, but a few star players dont build great teams.

hamels too...but wade didnt really handle the drafting, mike arbuckle has. but wade was the one responsible signing thome to a huge contract when we had one of the best power hitting prospects in the minors, tearing the cover off the ball. he also went out and signed david bell and jon lieber to big contracts as well. our farm system has never been considered good, even though those players did come out of it.
