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.

Pitchers and Catchers

17 days until pitchers and catchers report. This offseason has definitely gone by much faster (with good reason) than any I can remember.

Not a lot of action on our front recently. I could talk about the word that the Phillies are trying to get a righty bat for the bench (Garciaparra, Wigginton, Alou, etc.). Garciaparra would probably be my first choice. Alou is 42, and only an outfielder (probably not a good choice). I believe Wigginton is overrated and has a career .330 OBP. I don't see the Phils getting Garciaparra, and whoever they do get will probably be the wrong person.

Flyers back in action tonight. I found this interesting article on philly.com by Ed Moran titled "Flyers can't relax returning from All-Star break". That just sounds really obvious to me. No?
