Amaro plans to start offseason with staff decisions

ATLANTA -- The offseason for the Phillies begins Monday, and they have a long list of things they need to do.

But first things first.

"Our first order of business is our coaching staff," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "We have some quality people here. I'm talking to Ryne [Sandberg] about it. I'm talking to my own staff about what's best and how we can best support him. That's probably the first thing."

Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee has been with the Phillies for nine seasons. Catching coach Mick Billmeyer has been on the big league staff in different capacities since 2004. Hitting coaches Steve Henderson and Wally Joyner, and bullpen coach Rod Nichols joined the coaching staff this year. Third-base coach Juan Samuel has been with the team the past three seasons.
