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 131: Manuel uses a good lineup; lineup does not produce (73-58)

It is not unusual for Charlie Manuel to bat Chase Utley second to break up the lefties in the order. However, before last night, I can't remember the last time Chase Utley batted second against a righty. In last night's lineup, Manuel managed to avoid two consecutive lefties (Werth batted between Howard and Ibanez; Polanco after Utley). It's good to see that the manager can utilize this lineup against righties as well as lefties.

Unfortunately, it made no difference. The Phils earned one hit in 9 innings en route to a 3-0 loss. Except for the fact that Rollins (.329 OBP) led off while Ruiz (.385) hit 8th, there's nothing the manager can do about a game like that.

Tonight the Phils look to avoid a series loss when Kyle Kendrick faces RHP Carlos Monasterios.
