The Phillies have officially named Andy MacPhail the new team President. He replaces Pat Gillick....who has been acting President since last year. MacPhail was expected to take over sometime this month after being hired for the position in June.
MacPhail had already made some executive decisions...namely announcing that the Phils would be hiring a new GM (replacing Ruben Amaro Jr.) and electing to keep Phils skipper Pete Mackanin for at least the 2016 Season.
MacPhail now begins the search for a new GM (General Manager). He plans to name the new GM by the end of the month.
I want to congratulate Andy MacPhail and wish him much success in bringing the Phils back into playoff contention.
Talk to you soon,
