Phillies announce Wolever firing

The Phillies themselves issued a brief statement: “The Phillies announced today that the contract of Marti Wolever, Assistant General Manager, Amateur Scouting, will not be renewed for 2015. The Phillies express appreciation for Marti’s many years of service to the organization.”

It's a perfect example of a GM facing criticism with a long-term contract in tow: get rid of the underlings to protect a position of power.
