Richard Rys of Philly magazine wrote a massive, and terrific, piece on the Phillies ownership. Five silent partners, who meet 4 times a year to discuss the state of the team. A team where friendship is valued more than performance and where caution always is weighed above risk.
It seems we get these ownership exposés about once a year. But this is the best piece I’ve ever read about the lackluster owners we know nothing about. I keep waiting for that deadline deal that will put us over the top. Alas, I should resign myself to that never happening.
SELL. SELL. SELL.
