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.

Not much to say about Manuel tonight. The lineup was what you'd expect at this point, and with the Phillies up by a large amount for most of the game, it was hard for him to mess up. Up by 5 runs heading into the 8th, Manuel used Diekman and Qualls to record the final 6 outs. Qualls usage is kind of questionable as he's apparently one of the best bullpen arms, but we'll let it slide.
