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.

There's really not much to mention about the the managerial decisions aside from the fact that Manuel tried to utilize platoon matchups more than he usually does with a 2-run deficit. Chad Qualls was brought in to finish the 7th against Omar Infante. Schwimer was used to face Ramirez and Stanton, which he did successfully, and then Raul Valdes was brought in to face LoMo with no one on base and 2 outs. That makes it two consecutive days where Manuel's bullpen management resembles something requiring thought. I like it.
