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.

He just doesn't get it

When asked how he feels about Burrell possibly making the all-star team, Charlie responded, "I'd love to see him make the all-star team," manager Charlie Manuel said. "He's had some big RBIs. He's had some clutch hits for us." He just doesn't get it. He's hurting Burrell's strengths (getting on base and hitting for power) by hitting him in front of mediocrity. Burrell currently leads all NL outfielders in home runs (20), on-base-plus-slugging percentage (.998), and slugging percentage (.584) and second in on-base percentage (.414).

I hope he makes the all-star team somehow.
