Cliff Corcoran: Amaro admits mistake by trading for Oswalt

Trading Cliff Lee was a mistake. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. admitted as much by trading for Astros ace Roy Oswalt on Thursday. Amaro may never come right out and say it, but his actions speak louder than words. Within moments of acquiring Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay on Dec. 16 of last year, Amaro pulled the trigger on a deal that sent Lee, who had emerged as the postseason ace of the repeat National League champions after being acquired from the Indians at last year's deadline, to the Mariners for three prospects. Amaro's motivation was that, after trading away seven total prospects for Lee and Halladay, he needed to restock the farm system and thus couldn't afford to have Lee walk away as a free agent after the 2010 season without getting something in return.
