Amaro: ‘Status quo’ with Gillick as interim Phillies president

The front office’s hope is that an American League team will take a chance on [Ryan] Howard if he reaches plateaus such as 25 home runs and 100 RBIs”... yup, that does sound like Phillies status quo.

Best of luck to Carpenter.

A little more than 3 hours before last night’s first pitch, Ruben Amaro Jr. addressed the players gathered in the visiting team clubhouse at Citi Field. The Phillies’ general manager reiterated the developments of Thursday, that in the wake of David Montgomery’s medical leave of absence, Pat Gillick will be interim team president…

Montgomery, the longtime team president, is recovering from May 19 jaw-cancer surgery… Gillick, the GM of the Phillies’ 2008 World Series team and a Baseball Hall of Famer, has been a senior adviser to Montgomery and Amaro. He has held the position since stepping down from his GM post after the championship season, when Amaro took over.

From a baseball operations standpoint, Amaro said “there’s no change” with Gillick at the helm. Montgomery will return and resume his role upon his full recovery.

From what I've read in the Phillies blogosphere and Philly news media, Montgomery is the controlling partner of the Phils' legal entity.

Until he relinquishes that role or passes away (*), he is still at the center of anything Phillies related...........

(*) I don't believe I've read what happens if he passes away or becomes medically incapacitated.

Frankly, I'm not clear if Montgomery's controlling partner status is "intuitu personae" or not.
