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 120: Giants salvage 1 out of 3 (68-52)

The Phils did nothing last night as they lost a huge chance at a 3-game wild card lead, losing 5-2 to the Giants. Cole Hamels again got no run support.

The manager made no mistakes last night other than leading off Jimmy Rollins and batting Carlos Ruiz 8th. When you compare their OBPs, it really should be the opposite.

The Braves lost, so the Phils are still 2.5 out of the NL East.
