TODAY'S FEATURE STORYPHILLIES DENY MONTGOMERY REPORT! DAVID MONTGOMERY remains on medical leave after battling cancer
early in the 2014 season, the Phillies announced yesterday morning,
rebutting a report that the team president and CEO had been "pushed
out" by ownership. Montgomery is expected to resume his role atop the
organization when his health enables him to do so. This isn't news. The
team had the same position when Montgomery, who had surgery for
cancer in May, took a leave of absence Aug. 28. But the Phillies felt the
need to reiterate Montgomery's status following a news report Thursday
that the team president had been "pushed out." Fox 29's Howard Eskin
ended his station's 5 p.m. newscast by reporting that the medical leave
had been a convenient story for the ownership to deal with Montgomery.
Eskin reported that Montgomery had instead been "pushed out" of his
role as general partner, president and CEO.

|WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO RUBEN?
Twenty years ago, we screamed that there was no business plan that
defined the Phillies organization. Finally we saw this as Pat Gillick came
to Philadelphia. Gillick brought with him a keen baseball intellect, and
a sound business plan. Six years removed from the Gillick revival, the
Phillies are once again, an organization with no real business plan. If
today's brain-thrust had the ability to infuse life into this organization,
they would have by now. Can Ruben Amaro devise, implement,
and stick to that business plan like Sir Patrick did?|
