Revealing piece on Phils’ ownership

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.
