Pat GillickMark 2008 as the last season that Pat Gillick will be known as the General Manager of the Philadelphia Phillies.  Gillick announced today when his 3-year contract agreement ends at the season he will not be returning. As reported by The AP:

"This is it for me," Gillick said in Tuesday's Philadelphia Daily News. "I'll fulfill my contract. It's time to think about doing some other things in life." 

Gillick will be 71 when his contract expires.  As further reported, "his impressive resume as a general manager includes two World Series titles with Toronto, seven division championships and nine playoff appearances with three teams -- the Blue Jays, Baltimore and Seattle. If the Phillies make it to the postseason, he'll be 4-for-4 guiding clubs to the playoffs."
