...but.....if Ed Wade keep his job; how long before Lyles, Norris and Cosart become Phillies?? Did he come here to build the Astros or the Phillies?? It's a bit confusing. I'm not trying to make him look bad; he does that without any help. But he has sent a lot of talent to his old team and has brought in very little talent here. The Bourn to Atlanta trade was embarrassing. He had an opportunity to "plunder" the Braves farm system and he failed. Albeit the players brought in go to the "head of the class" in the Astros system (which wasn't hard to do); he didn't get any of their top prospects. I wonder if he thought that by making a deal for "better than we had" he could hide the fact that he failed us AGAIN. As happy as I am that our farm clubs are improving it's time to follow in Philly footsteps (yet again) and send Mr. Wade down the road.
With the trade deadline over and the trades are complete; I believe the Ed Wade should:
Be given an extension to see this rebuilding project through. (5 votes)
Be given one more year to see if he's finally figured this out. (7 votes)
Be kept until his contract is over. no need to pay him for not working. (15 votes)
Be fired at the end of the season. He's failed us for the last time. (53 votes)
