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 1: Roy boy (1-0)

What a beautiful way to open the 2010 season. The Phillies picked up their first Opening Day win since 2005 (WP: Jon Leiber) behind a solid 7 inning outing from Roy Halladay. Halladay went 7 while giving up 1 ER on 6 Hs 2 BBs and 9 Ks (I would like to charge the second base umpire with that run, as he failed to see Morgan come off the bag while Rollins held the tag on). I'm sure Halladay would have liked to have pitched the complete game (I wouldn't have minded seeing it), but Manuel was right to use Bastardo and Herndon to mop up.

Big day for Placido Polanco as he accumulated 6 RBIs. The Phillies had an all around great day as everyone got involved in one way or another.

Chris Wheeler's disgusting idea of food (describing Polanco's GS): "... and here's the whipped cream for the ice cream with the salami." Gross.

Wheels likes to eat whipped cream on salami's as he rocks around the "clock."
