New Ownership Featuring Gillick A Possibility?

http://cbs.sportsline.com/mlb/story/10884085

Kind of just expanding on previous rumors, but word is a group led by Microsoft exc and part owner Chris Larson and featuring Gillick might buy out the team from Hiroshi Yamauchi.  Then Gillick would be placed in charge of the baseball operations. They say Kenji's new deal might have just been the Japanese ownership trying to take care of him before they move along.

Here's the thing that stuck out to me and makes this seem almost probable-

Gillick is retiring from the Phillies at the end of the year, but he's sold his "dream retirement house" that he had custom built in Toronto.  His wife also sold her art gallery in Toronto.  This is a huge deal.  Who does something like that without something big planned?
