Its rumored, well really pretty much fact that former Mariner GM Pat Gillick has been hired as the new GM of the Phillies. This really isn’t surprising to at least this mariner fan. Its no secret he wants to be on the East Coast. I thought Pat did a good job for the mariners in bringing them to power in the late 90's early 2000's. However he did not really build for the future and that is something the mariners are paying for dearly now.
I wish him the best of luck and I am sure he will do well in Philly.
