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.

Feliz out

Pedro Feliz will not return to the Phillies. Good job, Mr. Amaro, now go get Chone Figgins.

EDIT: The Phillies are not picking up his option. They can still re-sign him to a new contract, which seems unlikely. Brett Myers, however, is definitely out.

fuck feliz.

i realize feliz was the second best 3b according to the fielding bible from 2006-2008 but he didn't crack the top ten in 08 (his first year with the phils) and I wouldn't be surprised if he misses the top 10 again this year. (http://espn.go.com/mlb/stats/fielding/_/position/3b/sort/zoneRating).

more importantly there are plenty of good defensive third basemen in the mlb who can handle not swinging first pitch and avoid hitting into double plays.

sign chone figgins baby. a leadoff man with his obp would be an incredible addition to the lineup. having the dynamic rollins later in the order vs feliz would be fucking awesome.

reward the phillies fan's attendance/tv ratings and increase the payroll, trade for halladay, win the whole fucking thing.
