Coming on the heels of 73-win seasons in 2013 and 2014, Phillies fans, who got used to greatness from 2007-to-2011, will be shocked to hear what acting CEO Pat Gillick said yesterday.
For years the Phillies have claimed that they’re winning now and if things go just right they can compete with the Jimmy Rollins/Chase Utley/Ryan Howard core.
Gillick is pretty honest, saying that the Phillies are in rebuild mode, not reload mode:
“I think where we are right now, it’s probably a couple years,” Gillick told CSN’s John Clark in a 1-on-1 interview Thursday. “I wouldn’t think  or [2016,] ’15 or ’16 I don’t think is in the cards. I think somewhere around 2017 or 2018.”
