That's all we can do from here on out...pray. Please God grant me this one wish...fire Charlie Manuel!
Manuel is losing games for the Phillies this season with his "retarded hick-like" moves. Since when has Franklin become deserving on 8th inning setup man? Since when do relievers make 100+ pitch, 7 inning outings? Since when do you not use your closer (Gordon) or a man with a sub 1 ERA (Cormier) in a tight ball game? Manuel may be a great guy, and he'd probably be cool to chill with and talk some baseball. However, he is a complete and utter mess when it comes to managing a team...and this is the story of my beloved Phillies.
Thoughts: *Nunez has ZERO rbi's in 52 ab's. *Ryan Howard looks amazingly lazy in the field and unintelligent at bat at times. *Rollins doesn't understand how to hit, the hit streak was luck. Albeit, a ton of luck, but luck nonetheless. *Are these kids praying to Allah, God, or Jesus?
p.s. *Positive Note: Cole Hamels is injured and stratched from start...oh wait, that fricken sucks!
