Ed Wade sat down with Bob Brookover for an interview and discussed his past few months.
I did not want a token position. I didn't need it from an economic standpoint and I don't want to just be there. The role they carved out for me is very fulfilling. I'll have a chance to see the entire system from the major leagues to the Gulf Coast League. I'll scout a few outside triple-A and big-league clubs."
On the location of Wade's heart:
"My heart and soul is with the Phillies. I want to wear a ring that says Phillies on it. I still get a paycheck from the Astros and I want all those kids we acquired, whether it was from the Phillies or Atlanta in the Michael Bourn deal, to show up at the big-league level and be good players. They all have a chance to be really good players."
"Ed is not someone who has a tremendous ego," Amaro said. "I don't see any downside to this."
