Ruben Amaro, on the Phillies' core of Ryan Howard, Shane Victorino, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, and Carlos Ruiz:
"Our whole mantra when [former Phillies general manager] Ed [Wade] took over was to try to get a nice core together, and a lot of those guys are homegrown guys. Bring that core together and see where we'd go with them. It's great to have had that group of guys together."
