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.

The Cactus League is a poor man's excuse for Spring Training...

...and they think they are better than Grapefruit! I know you readers out there may not be as fruity as I am, but I prefer the grapefruit over the cactus. In layman's terms, I am heading to Clearwater, FL, for a couple days.

That's right, readers. I am spending my vacation time, which I have earned through hard work on The Manuel, on the Philadelphia Phillies. In fact, I am spending all of my hard-earned vacation time on meaningless Phillies games. Why? Nobody knows. Maybe it is because it's trendy to watch successful baseball teams 'train.'

Or, maybe it's just trendy to test a couple obscene jokes on opposing players while they take infield practice. That sounds about right.

Either way, I'll be the only obnoxious clown in Clearwater yelling at opposing players while wearing a home-made Matt Stairs jersey. As a reader of Charlie's Manuel, you can count on that.
