Pat Gillick is back with the Phillies and eager to change nothing!
A contract renewal for Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has secured him for at least the next 10 years. Amaro Jr.’s brand of declining baseball, otherwise known as comfortable for people who don’t like surprises, will continue in Philadelphia.
“This is a great moment for us all,” said Amaro Jr. referring to him and his family because no one else wants him here anymore. “It may take a few decades, but I plan to make this team a contender again.”
Amaro Jr. appeared fired up about the new season and those to follow.
“We’re going to start doing this differently next year,” said Amaro Jr. “First, we’re not going to be one of those teams with a lot of rookie losers. We’re going to bring in as many former champions as we can. Experience is important for a winning franchise. Believe me, I watched from a distance when the team won in 2008.”
