ESPN Now Reports Andy MacPhail Will Accept Prominent Role With Phillies

In what could come as no better timing, ESPN Now is reporting that Andy MacPhail will be accepting a position amongst the Phillies organization.

John Heyman of has also tweeted the following:

With Cole Hamels on the trading block, and the future of the Phillies franchise on the line, the timing could not have come any sooner as the trade deadline lingers closer, and trade talks are heating up.

The position that MacPhail will be accepting has not been released just yet, but most speculate he will be assuming the role of President, in place of Pat Gillick. This leaves an uncertainty for the GM position Ruben Amaro, Jr. currently holds, and the likes of Ryne Sandberg, but Pat Gillick has recently come out with support for his GM and Manager, perhaps in light of new information on the table?

It will only be a matter of time until official release from the Phillies organization on his position and future, and we will keep you up to date here at Phillies Nation.

    MacPhail, for those wondering how his last name is spelled.

    I can hear the jokes already. Appropriate spelling for Philly.

    It’s not Amaro’s fault, although I think that Amaro has to go. Amaro doesn’t play.

    It’s not Amaro’s fault. He doesn’t play. Although I think that he has to go.

      It’s not Ruin’s fault he gave out a bunch of bad contracts to declining players, and the scouts he supervises can’t evaluate talent?

      RAJ put this team together, these are all players he either brought in or decided to keep for one reason or another. I think management put pressure on him to keep certain players, but still, look at his trades for prospects. The Lee trade is now officially a disaster, and the Pence trade on both sides looks awful.

    The possible hiring of MacPhail may or may not do much good. It depends a lot on how much leeway he is given by ownership.
