Last month there was speculation regarding Pat Gillick talking to the Cubs about a job in the front office, but now that the general manager spot is open Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Gillick won’t be replacing Jim Hendry.
According to Rosenthal “it’s doubtful that he would even consider the Cubs” because Gillick “is happy as a special advisor with the Phillies.”
Just three weeks ago Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago wrote that Gillick “would definitely consider the Cubs if the situation was right,” so we probably haven’t seen the last bit of speculation linking the Hall of Famer to Hendry’s old gig.
