How is Gillick’s Alzheimer coming along? Figured that was the diagnosis after his dumb azz comments since he took over for Monty.

Todd… thanks for keeping us up to date… as a Phillies fan living in Denver, CO I continue to follow and root for the Phils. A couple of questions: 1) Do you think Pat Gillick will have a significant role to play in reshaping the club? And, if so, what would you guess will be his major moves and impact? Also, what is your best guess as to which players will not be in a Phillies uniform next year? I’m asking for your honor assessment and guesses and I won’t hold you to it… thanks, Hutch in Denver
