I just watched MacPhail's full Friday press conference for the first time, and this guy is really impressing me. I think he handled the media really well, and I have to say I'm really confident with the tone and direction he's setting for the team.
As the wayward O mentioned, I like the shots he took at the press, and I also liked the autonomy he gave Trembley in deciding where his players would bat and field.
Link to the conference can be found on this page at mlb.com. The full session runs about 18 minutes. MacPhail's smirk at the end (on the question about whether other teams want any of the players in this deal) is priceless.
