Amaro: 36-Year-Old 'Too Old' For Phillies

According to The 700 Level, Ruben Amaro Jr., at the screening of the Phillies World Series DVD, denied any interest in Garret Anderson.

From the Level :

Attendees shouted the names of FAs as Amaro walked through the lobby, and he responded to one:

Fan: “Garret Anderson!”

RA Jr: “Too old.”

Interesting, because Anderson is 36. Other free agent outfielders who are 36 or older (and thus out of Amaro’s preferred age range): Moises Alou, Cliff Floyd, Luis Gonzalez, Raul Ibanez, Greg Norton, Jay Payton, Manny Ramirez, So Taguchi, Jim Edmonds, Ken Griffey Jr.

The sore thumb there is Ibanez.
