Ruben Amaro, Jr. to Be Named GM November 2, 2008

Posted by Sean in Phillies.tk Archives, Sports (and other things relating to sports).

Pat Gillick is going to officially retire on top, and his assistant Amaro is going to be named his successer. In a shocking move, Mike Arbuckle (who I considered the better man) is going to leave the organization and find better opportunities (another GM opening?) after losing out in the “two-man sweepstakes.” All of this is unofficial, of course, until Monday when the GM meetings kick off in California. It is not known whether or not other high-ranking officials will follow Arbuckle out the door.

Had the pleasure of meeting Ruben in Lancaster at the Barnstormers Hot Stove Dinner. A nice guy with a fun personality. I wish him the best in his new position with the World Champion Phillies!

Hmm, interesting. Why was Amaro at the Barnstormers Hot Stove Dinner? I wish him well, but I honestly don’t think he as the better choice.
