Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr speaks at his press conference

What grade would you give Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr for 2011?

The pain of the Phillies chokejob is still pretty damn instense.  Curious to see if the Philly region registers even a tenth of a percentage point on the ratings scale for this World Series.

Here’s a sampling of recent/active threads from the PSC Phillies message board, along with the first post of each.  Click the thread title to check out each one:

Thread: Phils outright Orr, Moss; add Contreras to 40-man

The Phillies have done some light roster housekeeping.

Thread: Pathetic

That the WS starts tonight and the Phillies are not in it. The biggest letdown in my life as a fan.

Thread: Leadoff 2012

with some speculatory hypotheticals:

-if the phils and rollins part ways this offseason
-if the replacement ss is not a leadoff hitter
-if they go with mayberry/dom in left
-if it’s polly at 3rd, or another non-leadoff 3b

Who do you have lead off?  Is it Shane the 1hitter by default?  Macnow suggested – with Chase’s lack of pop, would you consider him there?  If Jimmy’s not back, how important is it to add a leadoff hitter from elsewhere?

Ruben was given a WS champion. Each year after they have regressed a step

2009 lose WS
2010 lose NLCS
2011 lose NLDS

Ruben has been given more resources to work with than any other in the history of the franchise on top of a champion. Ruben, you sir. Get a C
