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 74: Phils down to 5 regulars after Utley's injury in loss (40-34)

The Phillies have the best record after 74 games than any other season under Charlie Manuel, but after last night's 7-3 loss and the placements of Placido Polanco and Chase Utley on the DL, it doesn't seem like it.

Kyle Kendrick struggled last nigh. Manuel may have left him in slightly too long, but there's really nothing to complain about from last night. Tonight's game, however, is a different story (Greg Dobbs should never bat second for this team, regardless of the injury situation).

Tonight Joe Blanton faces RHP Mike Leake as they try to avoid the series loss.
