I don't like the fact that the Phillies are going with a 68 year old to come in and temporarily hold the GM position until they will likely hand over the reigns to Ruben Amaro Jr. in a few years.  As Balls, Sticks, & Stuff noted Monty isn't interested in Rocking the boat.  I think the Phillies needed to do some rocking.  I realized the odds of Monty and company bringing in a young gun like Theo Epstein was minimal.  It sure would have been exciting though.

To me Pat Gillick is a This Old House type of guy in a time when the Phillies may have needed an Extreme Home Makeover.

I'll give Gillick a chance, but I'm not very excited about it.  The Phillies problems may not lie with the GM, it may lie in Monty.
