As Paul Simon Would Sing...

"Where have you gone, Rick Bottalico
Our fans turn their lonely eyes to you
What's that you say, Mr. Manuel
The pen has gone and blown the game away
Hey, hey, hey"

Continuing to stick with Ryan Franklin in game deciding situations is destroying the Phils. Two outs in the 8th, tying run at the plate...not Cormi-air and his 0.64 ERA or Closer Gordon and his 1.45 ERA....no, stick with Franklin and watch the lead evaporate. This type of managerial idiocy cannot continue much longer.

Can you believe people still are defending the decisions of this moron?! I wish I could kick people in the teeth when they start saying, "don't blame Manuel", or "what other choice did he have", and moronic statements of that nature!

here is the whole song:

And here's to you, Mr. Manuel,
Wheeler loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please Mr. Manuel.
Cooperstown holds a place for those who play,
Hey, hey, hey

We'd like to know a little bit about your for our files
We'd like to help you learn about your team.
Look around you all you see are "Space Cadets",
Stroll around the dugout until you feel at home.

And here's to you, Mr. Manuel,
Wheeler loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please, Mr. Manuel.
Cooperstown holds a place for those who play,
Hey, hey, hey

Hide in the tunnel where no one ever goes.
Put it in your bullpen with your cupcakes.
It's a little secret just the Manuels' affair.
Most of all you've got to hide it from the GM.

Koo-koo-ka-choo, Mr. Manuel,
Wheeler loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please, Mr. Manuel.
Cooperstown holds a place for those who play,
Hey, hey, hey

Standing on the top step on a Sunday afternoon.
Going to the double switch debate.
Laugh about it, shout about it
When you've got to choose
Every way pick you seem to lose.

Where have you gone, Rick Bottalico,
Our fans turns it's lonely eyes to you.
What's that you say, Mr. Manuel.
The pen has gone and blown the game away,
Hey hey hey.

Well said. Whatever Manuel brings to the table, his use of the 'pen is as bad as Larry Bowa's, and that's saying something.
