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 118: Phils take game 1 from Giants (67-51)

Last night the Phils scored 5 runs in the 8th inning to defeat the San Francisco Giants, 9-3. They took a one-game lead over the Giants in the wild-card race. Roy Oswalt pitched 7 strong innings, and Ryan Madson got out of a jam in the 8th inning when the score was 4-3.

I have no real complaints for the manager other than Carlos Ruiz batting 8th. He must move up to at least 6th in this lineup; I'd probably put him in the 2-hole or maybe even leadoff.
