NL East Front Office Notes: LaMar, Phillies, Marlins

The Phillies announced that assistant GM of player development and scouting Chuck LaMar has resigned. LaMar, the Devil Rays' first GM, joined the Phillies in 2007 and became assistant GM in 2008. Here's the latest on the Phillies and other front office notes from their division…

  • Chipper Jones told Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com that the acquisitions of Hunter Pence and Cliff Lee should make Ruben Amaro Jr. of the Phillies an executive of the year candidate. "When he swings moves like those, he throws a gut punch at everyone in the division," Jones said.
  • As Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports predicted, the Marlins shook up their front office. Joe Frisaro of MLB.com notes that the Marlins reassigned Jim Fleming, who is now a special assistant to president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest. The Marlins also made former scouting director Stan Meek the VP of scouting and hired Marty Scott as VP of player development.

Give me a 150-200 million payroll and I’ll be executive of the year too

Because that worked out so well for the Cubs and Mets… among others.

The payroll doesn’t mean anything if you don’t spend the money properly.

No you won’t.

This is the only thing Chipper Jones has ever said that hasn’t made me stabby. I, personally, think the GM of the year should go to the D-backs GM (can’t remember his name right now) because bringing in Gibson and turning that team from what it was into what its is is almost a miracle. That being said, RAJ did assemble what will at least be discussed as maybe being the best NL team ever (depending on playoff performance of course)….

What’s the problem? If you can’t handle a person saying “no, shut up” and they’re not talking to you, then you’re going to struggle in life.

Good Lord, these are some of the most sensative people on Earth. What’s the problem with “Mr. Peanut?” Is it even possible to take offense to that? You must crap your pants every time you watch the “Mr. Peanut” comercial. This is ridiculous. You can’t protect your kids from everything dude. It’s called school. Do you plan on going to their school to sensor everything that every child says? Ay dios mio.

I don’t think it took much skill to sign Cliff. And I’m pretty sure they knew what they were gonna get.

Didn’t take too much skill? He’s the general manager of one of the largest markets in the sport. There was one person outside of Cliff Lee’s camp and the Phillies front office who knew the Phillies were trying to sign Cliff and that was Roy Halladay.

You spelled sensitive and censor wrong. As long as you’re volunteering for criticism.
