He's like the world's douchiest knight.

Usually baseball players don't do this until they go the the American League and become DHs.
"My focus here has always been building a great rotation," said Amaro. "Cole Hamels came up through our system and I brought in Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt and Cliff Lee. But our continued hitting woes in the playoffs shows this approach has some flaws. I acknowledge that. It's on me that the pitchers I acquired did not hit better."
Halladay, Lee, Hamels and Oswalt the supposed stars of the team went just 1-for-11 with 3 strikeouts in the 5-game series. Phillies closer Ryan Madson also went 0-for-1 with a punch-out, meaning Philadelphia's pitchers hit .083 in the series and struck out in one-third of their at-bats.
"We scored 11 runs in the last four games and lost three of those games, getting shut out on three hits in the elimination," said Amaro. "I've run the numbers and our ninth spot was by far the least productive. It was a huge hole at the bottom of our lineup. So to make this club better offensively, it's my mission to bring in some pitchers who can hit."
They probably don't wish he was back to get rocked in the World Series again.
