In an interview with Jim Salisbury a few weeks ago for csnphilly.com, Ruben Amaro stated that the Phillies will not make a major move at the trade deadline.
Charlie Manuel, on the other hand, has stated that he'd like to add a right-handed bat.
Amaro is sly like a fox, so it's tough to take his comments seriously. Just look how he unexpectedly swooped in and snatched Cliff Lee from everyone's grasp. During his stint as GM, Amaro's been an outside-the-box kind of guy.
It should be an interesting month or so leading up to the deadline to see how Amaro handles the financial situation. That is of course, if the Phillies decide to be a player at the deadline.
