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 106: Phillies undefeated with Pence in lineup (67-39)

Mr. Musser is pretty much dead on about how the Phillies should use newly acquired Hunter Pence. He should absolutely be playing over Ibanez instead of Dom Brown, but that's not going to happen because it requires thinking outside the box. Ibanez will make his money one way or the other, why not give your team the best chance to win while paying him?

Cliff Lee wasn't his best last night, but he still helped the Phillies cruise (for the most part) to victory. Howard went 4-for-4 with a walk as he was a main reason why the Phils won. I don't really have much to say about the game.
