Odds And Ends: Manuel, Garza, Madson, Honors

Before game three:

“Now, let me tell you something. We’ve got some more baseball to play. And you’re like, ‘I’ve got a lot of faith in our guys and we’re gonna win this thing.’ ”

Alright, Charlie, we’ll follow you.

“There’s even more noise at the Trop. Whatever noise they bring, I’m all for it.”

I mean, maybe if you factor in the Phillies fans chanting during game two, you might say … oh come on, Matt. This guy is clueless. I really, really hope the offense awakens tonight. And everyone going to the game tonight: Scream your faces off.

  • Jim Salisbury writes Ryan Madson’s recent performance will make him a richer man next season. He’s eligible for arbitration once more and made $1.4M last season

I would assume he gets around $3M or so next year, especially with his agent being the one, the only, Scott Boras.

  • Chase Utley and Brad Lidge were named to the 2008 Sporting News National League All-Star team Friday. It’s the second consecutive year Utley has reached this honor, and the first time Lidge has done so.

Congratulations, guys.
