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.

This isn't a huge mistake by Manuel, but when you have a history of bullpen abuse and a season where you have cost your team at least five games with asinine pitching strategy (both games in Pittsburgh in April, the 9-5 Mets game last week, the Braves game on May 2, and the 1-0 game in San Francisco [and those were just off the top of my head]), you're not going to get the benefit of the doubt anymore.
The Phils dropped 8 games behind St. Louis, and their season died for the 55th time.
