No Gillick as M’s advisor

The Phillies signed him to stay on as advisor, with Amaro as the new GM. Hopefully this goes better than his time here in Seattle as special advisor. For us, at least, it means we avoid a potential power struggle here, which is good. Zduriencik deserves his chance to succeed or fail without that.

    Huzzah! Best news all day.

    How much influence do advisers like this have? Specifically, how much did Gillick have over Bavasi early on?

    Probably depends on exactly who they’re “advising” – the GM, or the owners…

    yay! the Gillick-less Zduriencik is at the GM meetings, blogs Larry Stone here and here

    Agreed, DMZ.

    Even though I am a Gillick fan.

    Never in doubt.

    Maybe Gillick has already put together a contract with Raul Ibanez and will inform Amaro that signing Raul will be his first move as GM.
