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 7: Roy Halladay is not Roy Halladay anymore (2-5)

On Monday evening, I couldn't help but really feel bad for Roy Halladay.  It was his second outing of 2013, and at the time it looked like he really had run into a wall.  His velocity had been down dating back to last season, but it really seemed like he couldn't even locate the ball like he once could.  Halladay didn't finish the 5th inning because he was pulled for Chad Durbin who allowed two of Halladay's inherited runners to score. Down 7-1, the Phillies didn't stand much of a chance against Matt Harvey who only allowed 3 hits and 2 walks to go along with 9 Ks.

Halladay could lose 20 games, per the "He's my guy" inflexible STP.

You know something, just about any other organization would have pressed Bastardo into the starting rotation, by now. And this year's rotation ~definitely~ (apology for correct spelling)could use some juice, unlike year's past.

"My wish please come true" column...

Three of nine curmudgeons I would like to see axed, are now gone, six to go. The departed are Doug Collins, Andy Reid, and Andrew Bynum.

Those still plaguing my life start with the Head Curmudgeon, Charlie The Real Mule; his enabler boss, RAJ; Michael "What The Puck Are YOU Still Doing In Philadelphia?" Vick; Tony DiLeo, if he is still around, (I am out of touch since my home computer went down six weeks ago); and the Fatuous New York Rangers "brainless trust" of Glenn Sather and his coach, John Tortorella, who thinks players blocking tons of shots in the regular season is a good thing, so that they can limp, black and blue, into the playoffs.

Somewhere in the world the sun is shining, but not around my home, just yet.

Can we just extend the zombie manager a couple more years, already, RAJ?
