Ruben Amaro Jr. says it would be best if Phillies move on from first baseman "We've talked to Ryan," Amaro said in an interview with 97.5 The Fanatic's Mike Missanelli on Friday afternoon. "And I told him that in our situation it would probably bode better for the organization not with him but without him. With that said if he's with us, then we'll work around him. We'll hope he puts up the kind of numbers that we hope he can and we'll see where it goes from there." ... "No ones going to release Ryan Howard," he said. "That's not going to happen. Ryan Howard is too productive and too important a player to just release. You just don't do that with a player like that. But, we don't have any designs on doing that." http://www.nj.com/phillies/index.ssf/2014/12/ryan_howard_trade_rumors_ruben_amaro_jr_says_it_would_be_best_if_phillies_move_on_from_first_baseman.html
