From the Desk of Pat Gillick

Dear Robert,

On behalf of myself and the entire Phillies organization, I'd like to wish you and your family happy holidays and a healthy new year.
The holiday season is a time for giving thanks for what we have and reflecting on the year gone by. I started 2005 with one team - the Mariners - and ended it with another. As I recently told the Phillies' front office employees, I'm very thankful to have been given the opportunity here in Philadelphia and feel very much at home.
A lot of things have changed in my 25 years as a general manager, but the one thing that has remained the same is the fans. The heart of every organization is a loyal fan base and we thank you for your continued support.
On a personal note, Christmas came early for me and my wife Doris as our
daughter Kimberley gave birth to our first grandchild. I was fortunate enough to be in Tampa shortly after my grandson Cooper was born on December 15.
In closing, have a safe and happy holiday season and I look forward to meeting some of you at various Winter Tour stops in January.

Sincerely, Pat

Pat Gillick
General Manager
The Phillies
