Manuel Fired Up in Post Game Press Conference

Charlie Manuel was not a happy camper last night. And who would be.

He talks about not knowing what else he can do with his lineup at this point, and even gets into it with a veteran reporter.

    Will Charlie get a pass for this reaction, especially threatening to knock Eskin out? Now, I dislike Eskin as much as the next guy, but it seems like he was just doing his job and asking a legitimate question last night.

    Wait, Charlie… I have a couple of ideas for the lineup. How about dropping Delmon Young from it? And perhaps not hitting Revere –one of our best hitters as of late– 7th? That’d be a start.

      It would have been great if Eskin had responded with those suggestions.

    Well it’s simple then.

    If Charlie knocks out Eskin, they will score ten runs.

    Come on Eskin, take one for the team.

    put it on pay per view and we can pay off Howards contract and get us a new 1st baseman

    I think Uncle Chollie pretty well summed it up..the hitting guru doesn’t know what else to do with his it’s time to go! He obviously lacks the ability to improve the hitting and approach of these players.

    Understandably, Manuel is so frustrated with a group of underachieving players and pitchers. Like last year, he must have tried what seems like a hundred different changes in the lineup with little success. It’s not just the offense but we see flaws and mental mistakes in excecuting fundamentals, fielding errors of commission and omission, key injuries to Ruiz and Utley. The bullpen generally has been awful. The starting pitching rotation has taken hugh hits with injuries especially with Halladay now on the DL for most of the season . And Hamels? The $144 million “ace”who blew another lead (3-0) against the Amazin’ Mets, increased his ERA to 4.50 with no signs of improvement. So yes, I agreed with Manuel, what else can he do? Lets face it , the manager will always be the scapegoat for an underachieving team.

    I’m tired of reading excuses for Hamels. Did you know that he he has an 8.63 ERA in the eight starts in which the Phillies have scored at least three runs for him. He’s 2-5 with a no-decision in those games. You want an excuse for his 11th loss of the season against the Mets? Maybe the NY team owns Hamel as they have a 11-6 record against him (wink, wink).

    Oh well, I made a bet with a friend that Hamels will win one… in July. (smile)
