Pat Gillick a Hall of Famer? He better be.
Gillick was announced as one of 12 individuals nominated for induction under the Expansion Era ballot. A GM for 27 years, Gillick has nine playoff appearances and three, count ‘em, three runs as the man in charge of leading a WFC baseball club.
The man who constructed the 2008 Phillies and handed over a potential dynasty (we still need another parade, guys) to Ruben Amaro will now be at the mercy of 16 people on the panel. With Bill Giles being one of those members, Gillick better be at Cooperstown.
