TODAY'S FEATURE STORYWHO'S PLAN IS THIS RUBEN? So, after hearing so much the press, from fans, and from everyone
else in the baseball world, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro
tells us that he has an operational plan for the Phillies, something
that Amaro calls the "Phillies Way". This new plan, or at least the
announcement of the plan, was introduced at the beginning of the
last week of October, two months after Pat Gillick took over in the
absence of David Montgomery. Amaro has been general manager
for the Phillies since the end of 2008. Six years later, we hear news
that Ruben has a plan. This sounds like Pat Gillick's plan. These
developments indicate that the Phillies are not on the right track.
They also seem to indicate that Pat Gillick was saddled with Ruben
Amaro regardless of his feelings.

|THE FAILURE OF THE BUDDY PLAN!
The Phillies have become an organization that is complacent, behind
the times with respect to what their counterparts are doing, and an
organization that seems to have no viable business plan. Regardless
of how you look at it, all of this occurred during Ruben Amaro's watch.
When Pat Gillick left the organization as its general manager, both the
Phillies scouting program and player development system had regained
respectability, and were producing talent that was usable at the major-
league level. |
