In a move that most Philadelphia fans will quickly lead to the departure of Ruben Amaro, Jr. from his current role as General Manager of the Phillies, the team will hold a press conference today at 2:30 to announce the hiring of Andy MacPhail.

Mr. MacPhail, he of the unfortunate name, is, to me, an interesting hire. He has a pretty-good track record, and they say he embraced analytics during his recent stint with the Orioles. Let's hope he continues that trend here in Philadelphia.
In any event, the key to his tenure will be who he selects to replace Mr. Amaro. We need a young, aggressive GM steeped in analytics to take over control of player personnel decisions. Let's hope that Mr. MacPhail moves the franchise in that direction....
