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.

Kendrick will not make the team

Kyle Kendrick has officially been optioned to the minors. This is exactly why we laughed at the notion that Kendrick was the favorite in the beginning of camp to make the 5th spot in the rotation. It is now between J.A. Happ and Chan Ho Park, which is exactly what Charlie's Manuel predicted in early February. Hopefully Happ gets the job, but something tells me that the Phils will be tempted to put him in the bullpen to alleviate the shortage of lefties due to J.C. Romero's suspension.

So, next time philly.com prints an article in direct contradiction to something Mr. Graham wrote nine days earlier, you'll know who to believe.
