Charlie Manuel frequently makes poor strategic decisions. The 11-million dollar scoreboard in left field would probably do a similar job. We guarantee a post analyzing Manuel's decisions for every Phillies game. Please click on our aliases below to email us.

Pre-game

Mets starter- Oliver Perez LHP

Phillies lineup with career BA/OBP/ SLG vs Perez..
1. Werth- ok...... (.273/.438/.273) good OBP
2. Utley- Yes, Burrell is 3rd?!?!!....(.333/.571/.444)
3. Rollins- Whaaaaa? How??? ... (.273/.360/.591) Ok, Burrell is 4th.. right?
4. Howard- Ugh... (.063/.158/.250)
5. Burrell- (.273/.393/.864!!!) 4 HRs in 28 PAs...

Well... I guess this isn't much.. but Howard's numbers are pitiful against this guy. Burrell should be hitting 4th, and not just today either, but especially today with a lefty pitching.
