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 119: When the Phillies starting pitcher doesn't get out of the 5th inning, look out (54-65)

Vance Worley took on Yovani Gallardo on Friday night.  Gallardo is a very good pitcher, Worley is not.  Worley continued his streak sub-par starts and early exits.  Worley could not complete 5 innings, and gave up 7 hits and 3 walks.  Meanwhile, the Phillies, as expected, struggled against Gallardo.

There's not much to mention in games where the Phillies trail early against a quality starter, and the bullpen needs to finish 3 1/3 innings.
