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.

Game 30: Phils win series opener (16-14)

Not much tonight on the part of Charlie Manuel. Weird lineup changes. Victorino isn't a good leadoff man, but he's doing better than Rollins right now. Ibanez is still batting 6th. The goal should be to move him up. Manuel split up the lefties well though.

Weird use of Scott Eyre in the 7th. 2 outs with a PH up and no one on. Could have left Durbin in. Whatever. Once Eyre was in, he could have been left in to pitch to Pierre in the 8th. Whatever. I would have seriously considered pinch hitting Stairs for Feliz with the bases loaded. Whatever.

Werth stole 4 bases tonight including home. Breakout season? Cheer no Manny.
