Phillies Hire Andy MacPhail As Pat Gillick’s Successor

Andy brings an uncommon blend of old school experience and new age thinking. … In 1986, Andy was the youngest GM in the history of Major League Baseball when he served in that role for the Twins. The following year, he became the youngest GM to win a World Series title. When the Orioles hired him eight years ago, Andy became the first president of baseball operations in Major League Baseball. During his tenure in Baltimore, he greatly expanded the use of statistical analysis in player evaluations. That’s the new age thinking.”

Welcome to the 90s Phils!!!

Matt Goldman: Andy MacPhail set to join Phillies as top executive

It’s finally happening…

According to Jon Heyman, the Phillies are expected to name former Twins, Cubs, and Orioles executive Andy MacPhail as the new leader of the club. While current President Pat Gillick will remain with Philadelphia in a consultation role, MacPhail will take over the lion’s share of responsibility when it comes to the Phillies’ future. He’s set to be installed soon, as it will give him ample time to “evaluate the team’s general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. and manager Ryne Sandberg”.
