...when September ends
Wake me up, when September ends. Why? Because- Charlie Manuel is an American Idiot, or maybe just a Nimrod! Either way he's not very baseball savvy, and with each post game interview seems to reach a new apex of bumbling dumbass. I hope he can replace Geary, Madson, White, and Fultz's arms with Lego parts, because he's over using them. And it's not like he doesn't have a guy out there in the form of a model-dictator (Fabio Castro) that isn't fresh and also hasn't allowed a run since joining the team. But wait...he's a Rule 5 guy, so Manuel will stick with "conventional wisdom" and use him only in blowout games because that's typically what Rule 5 are meant to do. Manuel has made similar decisions like this over the past 2 seasons. He'll often pull a rookie pitcher after 5 innings, even though they still got a lot left in the tank, because as Wheeler would put it "they were only looking for 5 good innings out of him". Wow, that is retarded! I understand hoping for 5 good innings, but if the guy can give you more let him do it. I simply can't take much more of Manuel's baseball "strategy", or lack there of!
*Positive Note- Ryan Howard better get some serious consideration for MVP, because his #'s right now are staggeringly mind-blowing!
P.S. This 1 finger salute is for you Uncle Cholly!
