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 5: Phillies score double digits for the first time this year (4-1)

Joe Blanton and the Phillies offense got off to a great start last night. However, as the game went along, Blanton slowed down and ran into some bad luck (mostly from his defense) that allowed the Mets to climb back into the game and eventually tie it up.

The Phillies scored a few more runs, and the bullpen (Bastardo!, Romero!, Madson, and Contreras) shut things down to secure the win for the Phillies.

I don't have much to say from a managerial standpoint about last night's game aside from the usual lineup complaint of Francisco batting after Raul, and Victorino only seeing 3.6 P/PA from the leadoff spot.

The Phillies try to win the series today as Roy Halladay takes on Jon Niese
