Charlie Manuel - What are your opinions?

Postby costag » Wed May 24, 2006 9:13 am

I am from philly and follow baseball pretty closely. I'd like to think I have a good understanding about how the way the game should be played.

With that being said, I know Charlie Manuel gets bashed by the Philly media and sometimes I feel bad b/c it may be undeserving but he has me scratching my head every few games with some of the decisions he makes!

Do fans from other teams see what philly fans see? I also heard that the Mets Broadcasters had a few bad things to say about his managing.

I was pulling for Jim Leyland instead of Uncle Chollie but being the bonehead that Ed Wade was, he never had a chance!!!!

Man, am I frustrated in Philly!!!!

Grade A moron.

How do you take out Rhodes after he pitched a lights out 7th inning when he could have faced Floyd to lead off?
Why do you use 3 pitchers (Fultz/Geary/Rhodes) for 16 pitches collectively but leave one guy in for 105?
Why won't you let Gordon come in for a 4 or 5 out save? He barely gets any work anyway, yet you'd rather use Franklin for no reason what so ever.
Why do you pinch run for Burrell, and not even attempt to steal a base?
Why do you do a useless double switch for Bell when he's having a good game?

Yeah like I said, Grade A moron.

He's an idiot and like 85% of all MLB managers, he lacks creativity and innovation.

Yeah, from his days in Cleveland I know that he's not one of the brightest bulbs in the box. Ultimate players manager though, loves veterans. Also, his postgame interviews were the best and we always used to try and guess if he was drunk or if he just spoke that way all the time.

Yeah, it's all the time.

He's an absolutely perfect bench coach. That's where he'll most likely end up.......

Here's 1, why put Madson back in th rotation after he's been bad as a starter and so far bad as a reliever? Wouldn't you want him to get used to pitching in relief again??? Would have made more sense in having Franklin start or even Brito or Gonzalez maybe.
