This is a nugget from an ESPN Steve Philips chat today:

Victor Zambrano to the Giants for Alphonzo. Cliff Floyd to the Cubs for Corey Patterson and Glendon Rush. Then, the Mets spin Patterson to the Devil Rays for Danys Baez. The Mets THEN take Mike Cameron, Edgardo Alfonzo, Danys Baez and Glendon Rush and trade them to the Red Sox for Manny Ramirez. The Red Sox get two right handed bats to replace Manny, they improve defensively at 3B and LF, they add pitching depth with Rush and they get a closer with Danys Baez. The Cubs get the bat they are looking for without any substantial impact to the major league team. And, the Devil Rays get a young high ceiling prospect in Patterson -- the kind of player they like. And the Giants get pitching depth and free up 3b for Pedro Feliez once Barry Bonds comes back to play. It works for everybody!

Why the **** would any one listen to this *** clown?!!!
Secondly, how was he ever a GM for a major league club?
Why does a SPORTS ONLY network consistently hire the biggest baseball retards to give analysis on baseball?

You might want to go easy on the retarded thing. It offends a lot of people, myself included. Thanks.

This sounds like video game trading to me. Phillips is spending too much time playing MVP Baseball.

I think it's about time to declare Phillips a perminent resident of the ****house.

Video game, strat-o-matic, rotisserie, or maybe plain old baseball cards....but trade scenarios like that never happen in real life.

To answer the thread title, he did fail as the Mets GM.

[lame]/Willie Harris and Joe Borchard for Danys Baez. McCarthy and Dye for Burnett. Burnett and Baez for Manny Ramirez, and the Red Sox eat 1/2 of the contract. Everybody's happy!

Stroker, he didn't just fail. He failed MISERABLY. He left a top-market, huge-payroll clubs in complete and utter shambles. Huge, immovable contracts and a deleted farm system.

So yes, Steve Phillips is retarded.
