Per the Inquirer. My first reaction to this is “okay”. And it will take a bit more time to digest. As I mentioned when LaMar left, we don’t really know what these guys are doing on a day to day basis. Jordan was in charge of the drafts in Baltimore, and did see a nice chunk of talent come through the system in the last 5 years or so. His job in Philly will be on the development side of things, as from all accounts, Marti Wolever will continue to run the draft and set the org philosophy when it comes to drafting players. Jordan is well respected and he liked upside guys in Baltimore, so that should fit in well with what the Phillies already do.
These positions are very important to a team’s success, but it’s hard for us to judge the quality of these people because we don’t really know exactly what they do every day, how much impact they have on players, and how much importance their bosses will place on their opinions. Jordan seems like a smart guy and so we’ll give him time and see what happens.
