NYT: Gillick Master Of The Minor Moves

While we’re all wrapped up in game four, the New York Times’ Tyler Kepner has a nice article about Pat Gillick’s success in Philadelphia and previously.

Ruben Amaro Jr. (who Kepner said was very likely the next GM in Philly), said Gillick’s strength is the bargain bin:

” … for the piece that’s going to help our club be better, he is fantastic. It’s really helped getting a guy like Matt Stairs or J. C. Romero — the pieces that give your team some marginal advantage.”

I agree. While he has been hit-or-miss with blockbusters, he has pulled a lot of the right strings in the role player department. We’ll analyze Gillick’s tenure more in depth once the season ends. For now, this is a good primer.
