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.

Unfortunately for Phillies fans, Charlie Manuel refuses to optimize his bullpen by matching high-leverage situations with his most talented reliever, so Aumont was forced to stand on the mound until the 4-3 lead into a 7-4 deficit. I was watching the Eagles game when this happened, which is probably for the best. At this point, when you see the Phillies lose a close game, it's not a question of "if" Manuel screwed up, but simply "how."
