Solid tweet from Phillies beat writer Matt Gelb this morning:

Amaro said this yesterday at the press conference to announce Chase Utley's extension with the club. The conversation obviously lead to whether or not Utley can be a part of a winning ball club in the future in Philadelphia. Ruben seems to look at this club and see something different than their record would indicate.
I'm of the opinion the Utley deal was the right move at the right price and length. But as for the rest of the club, I might have to side with Bob Brookover on this one.
Do you think Ruben Amaro Jr. is delusional?
Here's RAJ and Chase talking about the extension yesterday:[mlbvideo id="29541271" width="400" height="224" /]
