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 35: Phils sweep doubleheader by winning in 5 innings (19-16)

It's easy to manage a 5-inning game. Clay Condrey is 4-0 (EDIT: Andrew Carpenter is 1-0 since he pitched over half the 5 inning game, Clay is still 3-0). Maybe Charlie Manuel is actually a soothsayer, and he knew that Madson wouldn't be needed in game 2 of the doubleheader.

Joke's on us.

Tomorrow, the Phils go for a 4-game sweep over the Nats at 1:35 pm when RHP Chan Ho Park faces RHP Jordan Zimmerman.
