PHILADELPHIA (AP) Andy MacPhail is the new man in charge of the Philadelphia Phillies.
The veteran baseball executive joined the Phillies on Monday with plans to take over as team president after this season. He'll eventually replace Pat Gillick, who helped choose his successor. MacPhail will serve as a special assistant to Gillick for the rest of this season, then take over all business and baseball operations.
"I'm going to take advantage of the next three months to learn everything I can," MacPhail said.
