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.

It good to see Manuel leave Blanton in for the 9th inning despite Jonathan Papelbon's availability. No complaints for Manuel today; apparently it is easy to manage a game when you have to make zero decisions.
The Phils head to DC tonight, where, thanks to their manager, they will have a zero percent chance of overtaking first place by the end of the series. Tonight they are underdogs as Kyle Kendrick faces RHP Stephen Strasburg at 7:05 pm.
