    Ruben Amaro Jr., General Manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, sits down with NBC 10’s John Clark and talks the future of the Phils. If you’re not excited for the 2011 season yet, consider this: Amaro calls this club his most talented team ever (on paper).

    If you’ve been following, the team looks pretty different than in recent years. We all remember the merry Cliffmas, when we re-signed Cliff Lee. But you need to give a little to get a little, and Jayson Werth is sitting on a pile of money somewhere in the Washington Nationals' ballpark. (Think he’ll invest in a shaving kit? Let’s hope not.)

    In the videos, Amaro discusses the intimate details of the Cliff Lee deal, J-Roll’s contract year, and the beauty of being a Phillie. Check them out, and let us know what you expect for the Phils in 2011.
