It’s only just past two o’clock, on the east. But with the trade deadline only a couple hours away, and with the Phillies seemingly getting ready to stand pat, despite the fact that the team is 47-61, the fanbase isn’t exactly thrilled.
So while general manager Ruben Amaro is seemingly asleep at the wheel, Twitter took some guesses at what he might be doing right now. Or they just took some shots at him, those were cool as well.
Regardless, I combined some of the today’s best tweets involving Amaro.

I stopped playing fantasy sports because every league I was in had 5 guys like Ruben Amaro. — Mike Mader (@michaelmader) July 31, 2014
Holy crap, Red Sox. Ben Cherington is the anti Ruben Amaro, Jr. Meaning he’s actually pretty good at his job. #TradeDeadline

Remember when all of the Linc started chanting “Fire Andy!”? I feel like we’d be doing the same for Ruben at home games, except the stadium is too empty for any chants like that to erupt.
