Phillies reward GM Ruben Amaro Jr. with four-year extension

The Phillies have rewarded GM Ruben Amaro Jr. with a four-year extension after leading the Phillies to two NL East titles and an NL pennant since taking over the help from Pat Gillick. 

Amaro has been very aggressive since taking over, trading for aces Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, and Roy Oswalt, as well as (re)-signing Cliff Lee, and bringing in veterans like Pedro Martinez and Placido Polanco
