ownership looks like that's one of them. on august 28th the phillies announced that president and ceo david montgomery was taking a leave of absence while he went through treatment for cancer in his jawbone. but sources told me that montgomery was pushed out as the head guy. i'm also told that there's a move to have a new owner of the phillies. john middleton is one of the limited partners of the phillies but has been buying more of a percentage of the team from the other partners over the years. i'm told he now owns 48% of the phillies. the way the limited partnership was set up, no partner can own a majority without unanimous approval of the other partners. now with the deaths many many of the original partners the families are willing to share their shares. he needs unanimous approval of the other partners. montgomery made the final decision on every part of the organization. montgomery's decision helped make the phillies the second oldest team in baseball. it was montgomery who made the decisions to sign jimmy rollins, ryan had you ward, chase utley and carlos rye uz.

david money is a really loyal guy. that put the phillies in this spot. loyalty is a great trait sometimes but not in sports. john middleton sold cigar company for $2.9 billion in 2007 has been the most aggressive of limited partners and will continue to be when he finally gains majority control. i'm toll it's almost a accept ryan howard will not be back next season and phillies will be paying to pay all of his 62 million he's owed in trade. if they trade him and sources also tell me that pat gillick and ruben amaro will look at trading cole hamels to get much needed young players. chicago cubs and boston red sox want hamels very badly. >> all right. going to be a rough ride with the rebuilding of this team. but this should have been done two years ago. but these decisions need to be made. eventually getting the phillies back to being a winning team. all right. watching out for those baltimore orioles to baltimore. baseball, g playoffs tonight. watch how aggressive they are. man on second.
