  • Sept.30: With San Francisco's 3-2 defeat to the Padres, the Phillies have been eliminated from the 2018 number 1 overall draft pick 'race'. The Giants or Tigers will have the number 1 pick. Pending Sunday's outcomes, the Phillies will have either the number 2 or 3 overall pick.

      • Many believe that the Phillies had someone in mind when they booted Pete Mackanin to the front office in a surprising move. There was speculation that the Phillies wanted Buck Showalter, but Showalter has another year left on his contract with Baltimore and Orioles owner Peter Angelos doesn’t let anyone out of their contract.

        GM Dan Duquette wanted to leave to take the president of baseball operations job in Toronto two years ago, but Angelos wouldn’t let him. Both Phillies president Andy MacPhail and GM Matt Klentak have ties to Showalter from their time with the Orioles.

        Other candidates believed to be in consideration for the Phillies include Dusty Wathan, manager of the franchise’s Triple A Lehigh Valley team; Larry Bowa, Philadelphia’s bench coach and the conscience of the organization; Red Sox first base coach Ruben Amaro Jr., the former Phillies GM who acquired some of the team’s top young players; Eric Wedge, who was MacPhail’s choice for the Orioles job ahead of Showalter; and Charlie Montoyo, who was recently promoted by the Rays to bench coach.

        • Amaro? Most Philly fans hate him from his time as GM. It is best that Amaro manage somewhere else if he is considered a serious managerial prospect. Philadelphia will not give him a chance.

          • 10/13/17: Larry Bowa will return to the Phillies as a Senior Advisor to the GM. It will be the first non-uniformed position he's had in his career that I can recall.

            • The Phillies should interview Dave Martinez of the Cubs for manager. Martinez is Joe Maddon's bench coach.
