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 14: The Antidote (9-5)

The Phils did not have a good offensive showing tonight, but they managed a 2-0 victory due to the mastery of Mr. Roy Halladay. Jayson Werth was responsible for both runs: he smacked a double off the top of the right center-field wall in the 2nd inning, and Raul Ibanez then drove him in. Werth also had an RBI double in the 6th inning to score Ryan Howard from first. BIG MAN CAN RUN.

Roy Halladay pitched all nine innings. This game is an example of exactly why Halladay is awesome for this team; they lost a winnable game last night, but they won a lose-able game tonight. It is almost gratifying to see the Phils only score two runs tonight. Why score too many runs when it isn't necessary?

The Phils could easily be down 2-0 in this series given their offensive output (yes, they should be up 2-0, but let's be positive), but Halladay ensured they'll be playing for the series win tomorrow when LHP Jamie Moyer faces RHP Derek Lowe at 7:10pm.
