Wikipedia, the absolutely, impeccably never-wrong source of all information, apparently isn't impressed with Astros General Manager Ed Wade.

The opening, in case you can't read it up there:

Ed Wade (born January 31, 1956) is the current General Manager of the Houston Astros and as a result of his many sometimes suspiciously one-sided trades with the Philadlphia Phillies is now considered by some to be an advance scout for the Philadelphia Phillies. These trades have led many to say that the Astros are the real AAA franchise of the Phillies. Wade is currently ranked the 29th best general manager in Sports Illustrated.

Ouch. The item continues in much the same way.

Is Wikipedia ever wrong?

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
